About the expo

This special exhibition features a sampling of artwork created by students from our sister city Kingston, Ontario, Canada, as well as artwork created by Scottsdale students. For the first time this year, these sister cities exchanged art for display in two teen art shows. Artwork from Kingston went on display at the Scottsdale Mustang Public Library in April-May 2019. In turn, the work of student artists from Scottsdale were placed on display at Kingston’s Tett Centre in June-July, 2019, in time for Canada Day. 

As this program invites teens to share their creativity and conversations through art, it also welcomes curiosity and openness to learning about other cultures. Building bridges of international understanding and goodwill, the Scottsdale Sister Cities Association serves as citizen ambassadors; creating networks and partnerships with eight sister cities around the world.
