Four Corners of Friendship: Sister Cities Lawrence

In fall 2023, Watkins Museum of History staff partnered with University of Kansas Museum Studies students and the local nonprofit Sister Cities Lawrence to create the exhibit Four Corners of Friendship: Sister Cities Lawrence. The exhibit shares the history of Sister Cities Lawrence and the connections it forged with three global cities: Eutin, Germany; Hiratsuka, Japan; and Iniades, Greece.
