The Honourable Dame Karen Pierce, British Ambassador to the United States and UNITINGUS.ORG, an American nonprofit that uses Integrative Arts to promote healing, wellness, and community invite you to the Allied Arts Exhibition.
Artists from the United Kingdom and the United States join together to honor a British/American commitment for peace and to recognize the power of Art to heal both mind and body while building stronger allegiances at the individual, community, and national levels.
United we stand! The essence of the allied relations between the United Kingdom and the United States spans the spectrum between war and peace running deeply through political affairs, cooperation in commerce, technology, and in the fundamentals of arts and sciences.
Join UNITINGUS.ORG and UK artists in an exhibition celebrating the healing and uniting aspects of therapeutic arts in the exquisite North Star Exhibition Hall. Artworks present the healing and uniting arts and show the personal alignment and commitment to one another. Watch for the release of the Allied Arts online exhibit!
