Diplomacy is an art form, involving communication, negotiation, and relationship building. Art is also a tool of diplomacy, a universal language that visually communicates cross-culturally. The Department of State preserves and promotes the art and artifacts of diplomacy in order to tell the story of American diplomacy as well as to provide a space for American diplomacy to happen.

Join the U.S. Department of State Diplomacy Center on Thursday, May 5th for a Google+ Hangout to discuss the art and artifacts of diplomacy.

The Google Hangout will be moderated by Liz Tunick Cedar from the Smithsonian Office of International Relations.

Participating in the hangout will be:

Marcee Craighill: U.S. Department of State Director of the Diplomatic Reception Rooms

Katie Speckart: U.S. Department of State Collections Manager for the U.S. Diplomacy Center

Claire D’Alba: U.S. Department of State Curator for Art in Embassies
