Palms flags at the Wende Museum

Flags deisgned by art students of Ms. Goldin are now on display at the Wende Museum in Culver City. They were winners of the Flag For Our Times Competition, which challenged students to create an original flag design representing dreams for a brighter future or one’s vision of a utopia.

You can also see the art at the Wende Museum's online exhibit.
