US Ambassador to Kuwait Alina Romanowski affirmed that her country’s embassy is fully prepared to support creators and artists in Kuwait.
Yesterday evening, Ambassador Romanowski hosted a number of diplomats and Kuwaitis at a reception she held at her home, including a program entitled “Art in Embassies.” Among the guests were a group of ambassadors, government officials and plastic artists, and Sheikha Hanouf Al-Sabah, wife of the Foreign Minister Sheikh Ahmed Nasser.
Addressing the audience, Romanowski said, “I am pleased to share with you 17 mixed-media artworks by American artists of different backgrounds, including immigrants, Native Americans, and a number of emerging and established artists. Through the “Art in Embassies” program of the US State Department, and through this program, I had the opportunity to select these artworks by American artists and display them in my residence here in Kuwait.”
Ambassador Romanowski praised the artworks of Zahra Marwan, the Kuwaiti-born American artist whose mother and brother attended the reception, appreciating the work of an American artist with Kuwaiti roots.
She continued, “During my time in the country, I had the honor to meet many talented Kuwaiti artists who work in many artistic mediums, and I enjoyed visiting many local and historically rich museums in Kuwait, and the US Embassy is ready to support creators and artists in Kuwait.”
