Two framed pieces of Jim's are their way to the U.S. Embassy at The Vatican as part of the ART in Embassies Program with the U.S. Department of State.  Dr. Miguel Humberto Diaz, U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See and previously a professor of theology at the College of St. Benedict and Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota,  requested two pieces for public areas at his diplomatic residence.  The artwork will be on loan throughout Ambassador Diaz's term.  We are honored to be part of the ART in Embassies Program.

Established by the United States Department of State in 1964, the ART In Embassies Program is a global museum that exhibits original works of art by U.S. citizens in the public rooms of approximately 180 American diplomatic residences worldwide. These exhibitions, with art loaned from galleries, museums, individual artists, and corporate and private collections, play an important role in our nation's public diplomacy. They provide international audiences with a sense of the quality, scope, and diversity of American art and culture through the accomplishments of some of our most important citizens, our artists.
