Catching up on a bunch of queued-up/blog-worthy stuff this morning. Here you'll find three paintings and a note explaining them that hang on the walls in the hallway outside Interaction Institute for Social Change and, in this case, more importantly because it's responsible for their being there, Hunt Alternatives Fund. Artist is none other than Nelson Mandela who painted them while imprisoned on Robbins Island.
Unfortunately, I can't supply any more info about the paintings or why they're there except to note that Swanee Hunt, co-founder of the fund and former ambassador, has a long history of policy and social change work in Africa. Anyone who knows how Ms. Hunt came to acquire these paintings, please chime in.
I snapped these shots while lingering in the hallway at the IISC conference on networks last week.
