The Duluth native took their stories about family, work, and life in general and put them into vibrant and touchable paintings.

"It was inspiring. I'm excited and eager to share the next phase. What happens next is that the public will be able to learn and see what the other cultures are all about," Labovitz said.

The interviewees are from Duluth's five sister cities, and Duluth as well. 122 represents the number of years that Duluth has had relationships with the cities.

Now the exhibit is set to open. The first showing is in Thunder Bay, Canada, and it opens on Thursday.

You can see it in Duluth in a couple of years at the Tweed Museum.
