The Soft Power Currency of Art Diplomacy

From art exhibitions to art awards, headlines this week in PD News were all about cultural diplomacy. A new mural in Charleston, South Carolina honors an influential botanist who helped shaped the state’s early trade dealings with France, while in Iran, an innovative art show convened contemporary artists from Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the UAE for an inside look at 21st century Arab life. Other headlines looked at collaborative art projects from Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
