Foreign Tongues and Chinese Art

The June issue of Indianapolis Woman has two "don't miss" articles.

The first is a profile of Betsy Hall Fehsenfeld, an artist whose ties to the world have resulted in a blockbuster cultural exchange. She facilitated the connections between Shandong University in China and the Indianapolis Art Center, resulting in "Two Worlds, One Language". The series of events and exhibits runs 28 June through 23 August.

(See also this post and this one for more posts on this groundbreaking event.)

The second, titled "Foreign Tongues", explains why everyone should learn a second (or a third or a fourth or...) language. Even those of us who live in the Hoosier heartland!
