What's Happening at Cedar Crest College
Professor Badt's Artwork Featured in Exhibition at U.S. NATO Mission Residence in Belgium
Pat Badt, professor of art at Cedar Crest College, is one of 14 artists whose work will be included in an exhibition organized by the U.S. ART In Embassies Program to be displayed at Truman Hall, the U.S. North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) mission residence in Brussels, Belgium. She is flying to Brussels today to take part in the artist’s reception on Thursday, and will be a guest of Truman Hall and U.S. Ambassador to NATO Ivo H. Daalder during her couple of days abroad.
Badt's painting, Esja—originally shown at the Lachaise Gallery at Cedar Crest College—will be included in the exhibition. Esja is from a body of work Badt painted while participating in an artist residency in Reykjavik, Iceland in 2008.
Established by the United States Department of State in 1964, the ART In Embassies Program is a global museum that exhibits original works of art by U.S. citizens in the public rooms of approximately 180 American diplomatic residences worldwide.
