Connecting bridges and spreading the colours of Pakistan to America
Pakistani-Americans react to the "Amherst Trolley"
In this blog post for the national Pakistan newspaper, The Express Tribune, Ken LeBlond talks about the reaction of local Pakistanis to the bus painted by Karachi artists, Phool Patti.
From the article:
When I first invited Karachi-based truck art group ‘Phool Patti’ to my small, new England town, my intentions were clear: to introduce my community to a softer side of Pakistan, which was still unfamiliar to many. However, the ensuing art project also became a liaison between overseas Pakistanis and their native home.
