For the past several months, an alumnus, Antonio Puri, has been an artist in residence at Woodstock. His art represents the many colors of people here and that we are all of one humanity. Today was the final day, the opening of the two artworks he has created while here. You can read more about it here.

We had a special tea and then the ceremony.

Gathering in the Quad

Dr. Long introducing Antonio and talking about his art

Alok Maiti, Indian music teacher, performed a short raga

Antonio thanked so many who helped

Ribbon cutting at Business Office lobby

Wall paintings in lobby (yes, this is where Diana Biswas sat for many years)

Ribbon cutting of the outside sculpture

DNA of many skin colors
And great news -- Antonio has gotten engaged to one of our Hindi teachers!

Thursday afternoon starts the beginning of the Mussoorie Writers Mountain Festival, which will go all day Friday and Saturday. I'll be working registration some of the time, attending as many sessions as possible, blogging here and proofreading/editing blog posts from students.

FYI, Dan is having a wonderful trip with his motorcycle buddy, Tashi. They will return late on Thursday.
