Russia

Japan. Russia. Canada. Kurdistan.

Just a few of the countries whose relationship with the United States has become increasingly fraught in the last months, but also just a few of the countries with whom Duluth enjoys a sister-city relationship.

The chance for people here to connect to the wider world, to meet people who are simultaneously different from and the same as they -- those relationships could be seen as the antidote to fear.

Concerns about weather prompted a move to the DECC for today's International Day of Peace Celebration.

The Museum of Russian Art in Minneapolis has a stunning solo show up for one more week, Faces of Change; Artistic Expression by Natalia Berglund.  Originally from Belarus, Berglund has produced a vibrant multi-layered exhibit of paintings and mixed-media portraiture. She joins us on Radio Gallery to share more about the iconic inspirations for her from women in fashion to Soviet propaganda.

You can see the Faces of Change at the Museum of Russian Art at 5500 Stevens Ave. South, in Minneapolis through Sunday, Sept. 23.
