Dear Mr. Kuehner,

I am reaching out to you and the Iowa Alliance for Arts Education on behalf of Iowa Resource for International Service (IRIS) in regard to an upcoming student art show focusing on diversity. We would be thrilled if IAAE could share the event with its network of educators. Please find attached an event invite and a description below:

IRIS, Iowa Resource for International Service is pleased to invite you to Layers of Diversity , a free and public art exhibit at the Des Moines Art Center on Friday, May 2nd through Sunday, May 4th. The exhibit features a collection of artwork created by Youth Exchange and Study students as a reflection on diversity and how their perspectives have changed through this program and their experiences in Iowa. IRIS works with over 40 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe but is the only organization to bring students to the United States from Nigeria and Tanzania under the YES program. For more information about IRIS, the YES program, and hosting opportunities, please visit www.iris-center.org

Thank you for your time and consideration,
