The first of the two exhibitions (15 February to 2 March) presented drawings and paintings by Nova Scotia students (K-12), and the second (8 to 23 March), work by students (K-9) in Osaka, Japan. The illustrated catalogue described approaches to art education in the respective public school systems. Marking the first year of the Art Education program offered by MSVU in association with NSCAD, the Exchange was accompanied by several public events.
This was an overwhelmingly popular show, supported by government and corporate sponsors. Acting as curators were Dr. N. Webb, Prof. B. Maycock, Dr. M. Nagamachi, & Prof. H. Okada.
