The Annual Children’s Art Exhibition, coordinated by the City of Windsor and the International Relations Committee, features works by children ages 6-12 from Windsor, as well as from the Twin Cities of Windsor: Changchun, China; Coventry, England; Fujisawa, Japan; Gunsan, South Korea; Mannheim, Germany; and Saltillo, Mexico.

“Every year, the International Relations Committee looks forward to hosting this special event,” said Windsor City Councilman Fred Francis, chair of the city’s International Relations Committee.

“It gives us the opportunity to celebrate and showcase the artistic talents of children in Windsor and around the world.”

The theme of this year’s exhibition is “We are one world,” which demonstrates the connections between communities around the world despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is the fifth annual exhibition of children’s art. The video includes greetings from the mayors of some of Windsor’s twin cities.
