Join us as MCC member Jim Conaway shares about his unusual experiences in Xinjiang Province, China, through images and stories. This province is known as the Uygur Autonomous Region and is in the far most western part of China. According to Jim, it’s one of the most desolate and interesting places in the world. Jim, who taught painting, drawing and ancient art history for 38 years at the university level, is now a full-time artist. For many years, he took university students to historic locations abroad for J-term classes, and in retirement, he has led adult group tours to sites in Europe, South American and Asia.

 

This is the one in an occasional series featuring MCC members and their travel stories.
