"Art in Embassies" is part of the U.S. Department of State.  When newly appointed ambassadors move into our American embassies all over the world, interor designers create new embassey environments by choosing art pieces from U.S. artists.  These art pieces are on loan for several years.  Artists may not sumbit work!  The designers do the choosing by looking at artists' websites.  I was astounded a month ago when I was asked if I'd loan "If I Ran the Zoo…" to hang in the American Embassy in Vientiane, Laos for the next 3 1/2 - 4 years!  Of course, I said, YES!"  It will be shipped there early in November.
