Leanne Fink

Three of Leanne Fink‘s paintings from her “Cradle of Life” collection have been selected for exhibition in the Ambassador’s Residence at the US Embassy in Amman, Jordan. The works of art are on loan to the US Department of State for a period of two years as part of the Art in Embassies Program (AIE). AIE is the largest curator of art in the world and has played a leading role in US public diplomacy for over 50 years. Its mission is to foster cross-cultural dialogue through the visual arts. The curator stated, “Leanne’s paintings of Jordan fit perfectly into our mission. An American artist recounting her experience in Jordan allows the viewers to see how their country inspires others.”
