Kansas Paraguay Partners and Comité Paraguay Kansas have had both visual and performing artist exchanges for most of its existence. Recently there is a special visual arts project between KPP, CPK and the Paraguayan Binational Center (CCPA). Amber Hansen and Eric Conrad have traveled to Paraguay to judge art contests and we await the visit of Sergio Jara the Paraguayan winner of the sculpture contest. Paraguayan photographer Teresita Gonzalez has also visited Kansas recently. All of this is to say that Paraguay has a vibrant visual art tradition. KPP supporter Arla Jones sent this link to Paraguay’s participation in the Venice Biennale. Take a look at some great work.
