Seven pieces of “Panamanian Submerged Timber” art collection, created by Matt and Philip Moulthrop, will be exhibited at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum : https://www.jimmycarterlibrary.gov/ in Atlanta, Georgia, from April 11th to April 28th.

For this exhibit, the Embassy of Panama assisted in coordinating the donation of submerged wood from the Bayano Lake in Panama, kindly provided by Wooderra (https://www.wooderra.com/), to bring to life a unique cultural partnership in which an American artist was able to use submerged wood endemic to Panama to create a collection that showcases the natural beauty of our country’s flora.
The exhibit can be visited during the Carter Center opening hours, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. We hope you can make it!
