"To many people the European Union may seem like an abstract idea; yet, there is no better way to illustrate the European ideal of joining forces, than to combine the rich heritage of each country into a month of cultural offerings," said Joao Vale de Almeida, Head of the European Union Delegation to the United States. "'Unity in Diversity,' the EU motto, is exemplified beautifully by the varied talents of all these great European artists."
