Featured Project Description:
From 16-19 August 1976, the city of Colombo, Sri Lanka’s then capital, was host to the Non Aligned Movement’s fifth international summit, chaired by Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike; an event that gave our small island nation international visibility. Excited to share in this vision, my extended family crowded into a relative’s front garden along the route of the official motorcade. This poster depicts the motorcade route, starting at Colombo Port, ending at the summit venue.
