ART CONNECTS PEOPLE…

So true isn’t it? Think about it….no barriers of language, interpretation or reason. Always filled with emotions, feelings and questions….and the best thing is: anything goes!

…and this is what our vernissage on the 19th of June in our WSE Cologne Centre was all about. It was a great combination of Art Lovers, inquisitive newcomers, staff and students – getting together, full of curiosity. Continue reading

What’s a Kiwi?
a) Is it a fruit?
b) Is it a bird?
c) Is it a person from New Zealand?

I am an American living in Bonn.  I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and moved here from Boston, Massachusetts four years ago.  I love living in Germany!  Of course, it was a big change from living in the States (more on that in a minute!), but has been so much fun to learn about a new culture, learn a new language (this continues to be a work in progress!), and experience life abroad.

Life for me in the United States was a lot of fun, and in case you are wondering, yes, I did have a brief stint as a cheerleader!  Continue reading
