An unequivocal success
This international event celebrated its 150th anniversary under the patronage of the President of the Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy. My experience in Paris was amazing. Rubbing shoulders with artists from all continents was inspiring. Canada was well represented with 29 artists selected by the Société nationale des beaux-arts (SNBA) of Paris. I was fortunate to win a special prize awarded by the SNBA to the various delegations.
