WCA Artwaves International Blog 2007
As members of the International Committee, we represent the Women's Caucus for Art as an NGO of the United Nations. We support the UN Millenium Goals and strategies of UNIFEM/USA. In this blog, we will document art-related activities in support of these goals and strategies. Our first event is a postal art show in February 2008 in the Ft. Worth-Dallas area. The exhibit is titled,"Sustaining Our Environment." We invite artists around the world who are concerned about their environment to create postcards that will provoke thought, debate and change.
