Jubilee in Berlin

Friends Forever is celebrating the two year's jubilee at the Art Center Berlin. The event is taking place on October 18th at 7:30 pm: You are very welcome! In October 2006, Friends Forever opened the exhibition of the Master Sculptors of Zimbabwe at the Art Center Berlin and wanted to stay there for two months. We have had no experience with exhibitions in such a big city and called attention with a huge poster on the glass front of the Art Center. Next to the entrance, a big sculpture of Colleen Madamombe was greeting visitors. The sculpture was sold before the opening! Now, after two years, Friends Forever is still at the Art Center Berlin Friedrichstraße. We want to celebrate with you. Visit the exhibition with new sculptures from Zimbabwe!
