The Department of State recognize the potential of art as a universal language that transcends borders. By utilizing these long term loan collections, these artworks can communicate subtle narratives that resonate with diverse audiences, fostering cross-cultural dialogue and mutual appreciation. Furthermore, these long term loan collections can play a role in challenging stereotypes and fostering empathy. By incorporating elements that challenge preconceived notions or showcase the common humanity shared across cultures, these collections will contribute to breaking down barriers and promoting a more interconnected global society.
