Annual Visit from Japanese Students

Tohoku University of Art & Design (TUAD) in Japan sends students each year to install a contemporary art exhibit at the Boston Children’s Museum led by their Professor, Minatsu Agriga.  Cobb Hill has become part of their yearly experience and we welcomed 12 students and two faculty to Cobb Hill on March 9th.  Their weekend stay at Cobb Hill included home stays with families on the Hill, a lecture from Coleen O’Connell on Ecology and Community, and a lecture by Phil Rice on the maple syrup process.  Coleen also conducted a Nature Printing workshop with the students.  As is their tradition, on Sunday they cooked a Japanese feast for the Cobb Hill Community.  The time is always too short, but great memories were made.
