Leadership Spirit Opening Show
Friday, August 17, 2012
At VSA Colorado Access Gallery
909 Santa Fe, Drive, Denver, CO 80204
The works of two artists in a collaborative project showcasing the
illustrations of Andrew Morris and Buna Dahal’s recently released book,
Buna, poet, writer, and renowned motivational speaker sought after for her
leadership workshops and trainings all across the globe, will be at the
Access Gallery signing her new book Leadership Spirit. As a child born
blind in Nepal, Buna found herself up against many obstacles, especially the
limiting beliefs of others. Choosing not to buy into it, Buna moved to the
United States at a young age, worked as a successful job trainer and coach
for the Colorado Center for the Blind, before earning her Master’s Degree
and starting her own business. Recently, Buna was asked to speak at the
United Nations Convention on the importance of spiritual leadership. To

working with VSA Colorado for 3 months. In addition to the work for the
book, Andrew will also be exhibiting some of his other work.

more than 30 years and her accessible fairy tales, books, and art, have been
seen and purchased all around the world. She will be showcasing her newest
