Each year the Office of International Affairs displays six to eight art exhibits with
international themes in the galleries of the International Cultural Center. Although
many of our exhibits are “one time only”, the following exhibits are displayed every
year. All exhibits and receptions are free and open to the public. For dates and other
details, please visit the Office of International Affairs Events Calendar or contact Jan Stogner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
