part of "Nomad Two Worlds'"art exhibit
But the exhibit is more than artwork. It boasts a fashion component by Donna Karan. Karan and "Nomad" artist Clifton Bieundurry, a Walmajarri artist from Australia, designed 10 one-of-a-kind cashmere-and-silk scarves.
$6,500 each, four scarves are being sold in an LA boutique
and the rest at the "Nomad" exhibit. Part of the proceeds
from merchandise and artwork sales will benefit UrbanZen's programs and
