Children's Artwork from the Nagorno-Karbakh Republic
These lovely drawings by the children of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic will be leaving the library at the end of this week. They're on loan from the Fermata Arts Foundation in Avon, Connecticut. The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is a landlocked mountainous region which seceded from Azerbaijan in 1988. Though there is a rocky truce between Azerbaijan and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Nagorno-Karabakh is not recognized by the United Nations as an independent state. The Fermata Arts Foundation's mission is to aid in the preservation of peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation. The model for achieving this is through the synthesis of art, architecture, philosophy and poetry. The Corporation exists to promote and encourage true intercultural dialogue between countries, through which the representatives of different countries can discover shared values and spiritual commonality.
