“Faces of Diplomacy” features portraits and videos of six diplomatic professionals working at U.S. Embassies in Rabat, Morocco, and Madrid, Spain. Their stories illustrate the range of skills and functions required in the conduct of American diplomacy. The exhibit is a collaborative project between the U.S. Department of State and students and faculty from The George Washington University’s Corcoran School of the Arts and Design. It is made possible through a grant from Wallis Annenberg and the Annenberg Foundation to the Diplomacy Center Foundation. The U.S. Diplomacy Center will serve as the permanent home for the “Faces of Diplomacy” exhibit upon the Center’s opening. The U.S. Diplomacy Center (http://diplomacy.state.gov), a state-of-the-art museum and education center currently under construction, will dedicate 40,000 square feet to bringing the story of American diplomacy to life. It will be located at the 21st Street entrance of the Department of State’s headquarters in Washington, DC.
