Holiday's Around The World
Sister Cities of Louisville will be part of
the Frazier Museum's exhibit Holiday's Around the World.
This exhibit gives visitors the opportunity to learn about holiday traditions found throughout Louisville's diverse communities with a visually-stunning and multi-cultural tree display.
This exhibit ranges from trees decorated as they would be in countries that observe Christmas
to cultural displays showcasing other holidays, cultures and religions observed around the globe throughout the year.
Being part of this exhibit gives people the chance to learn about the culture of the different
Sister Cities and is a wonderful way for our youth here and abroad to learn about the nine sister city relationships.
This educational display will run from Thanksgiving and will end on New Years.

Day of the Dead
On November 2nd the Quito Committee celebrated the Day of the Dead! The Day of the Dead is a traditional celebration in Ecuador and is observed by Ecuadorian families that gather together for a day long remembrance of their ancestors and lost loved ones.
Attendees shared culture, food, and language, serving a traditional fruit drink; Colada Morada and Guagua de Pan which is a sweet bread shaped like swaddled infant.
Here is a picture of a Guaguas de Pan with a Colada Morada.
Guests also had the opportunity to hear from I.U. Southeast students about their experience in Quito through video presentations.

St. James Art Show
This year we welcomed Artist: Mr. Wu from Jiujiang China to demonstrate his art at the St. James Court Art Show. Mr. Wu had told us that the purpose of being apart of the St. James Court Art Show was not about the profits made but about teaching the people of Louisville about Chinese culture and specifically traditional Chinese art. If he was able to show the people the meaning of Chinese art then his mission would be accomplished. We are happy to see the impact that Mr. Wu has had on the people through art demonstrations, through the displays from the Art Show and from being a Jiujiang representative. You can check out more pictures from the festival below!
