Something curious happened to me on my recent trip to Xi'An. I had arranged to go there to meet with the heads of the Xi'An Academy of Fine Art on a trip to establish a partnership with Maine College of Art (MECA). I was also meeting my friend Karen Smith, a wonderful writer and art critic in Beijing who is the director of a new museum here in Xi'An. She pretty much arranged everything and met me at the airport where we jumped into the academy's car.
