Cross-Cultural Visions, a 60th anniversary commemorative art exhibition at Gallery Korea, NYC, paid tribute to all artists who traveled on a Fulbright Korea grant, 1950-2010. The viewer standing before the monitor sees the title scene of du Bois' award winning documentary, "The Working Processes of the Korean Folk Potter." OSU Art Professor du Bois (now emeritus), was Fulbright Lecturer to Korea,1974.

As art transcends differences of language and culture, the art in Cross-Cultural Visions represents the important role that the worldwide Fulbright program has continued to play in promoting international understanding and bringing people together.

Last summer and fall, 2010, Cross- Cultural Visions traveled to New York City, Washington, DC and Seoul. Sponsored by the Korean Cultural Service, images from the New York opening of Cross-Cultural Visions, featuring the work of Korean and American alumni, was held at Gallery Korea, from July 7 to July 16, 2010.
