Charles Billich at the UN - Humanity United
Dear Mr. Nenad Bach,
I hope the following information will be useful for the purposes of the Croatian community.
Croatian/Australian artist Charles Billich is being sponsored by the United Nations Staff Recreation Council's Friendship Club and permanent missions of Croatia and Australia for an art exhibit entitled, Humanity United, in the UN Secretariat Lobby from 14-25 June 2004. The opening reception will take place on Tuesday 15 June from 6.30 - 8.30 pm.
Mr. Billich was commissioned to paint East Timor's official independence painting. He was also commissioned to paint a piece in honor of the 50th anniversary of the International Committee of the Red Cross that now hangs at that organization's Headquarters, his New York Cityscape hangs in the Port Authority, he presented a painting to the Pope, and this artist has an impressive CV of accolades that include Australia's official Olympic Artist and 2000 Sports Artist of the Year. He has amazing talent - stamps of his terra cotta soldiers are currently in use in China .
Mr. Billich's official website will provide more detailed information at www.billich.com.au .
If any other information is needed, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Best regards, Claudia _______________________
