A Brief History on Clan Destiny:
At the request of Theodore W. Kheel, Robert Rauschenberg created Clan Destiny to support the 1996 Conference on Human Settlements, also known as the United Nations City Summit which was held in Istanbul, Turkey. Clan Destiny hung in the plenary hall of the conference where representatives from more than (90) ninety nations were in attendance. The Conference concluded the United Nations series of world gatherings that began with the Earth Summit.
