My visual journal piece, Where You Can Have Peace, was recently selected as one of the 150 works for an exhibition (and for sale) as part of The Whole 9’s 2011 Peace Project. I’m glad to be involved with this project, even in such a small capacity.

Each work is printed on a 12in x 12in panel and available for $200 each (tax-deductible).  Each year, The Whole 9 also publishes a book including the inspiring peace-themed artwork and poetry. Funds raised from the sales support Operation Rise in Sierra Leone.

 

“We gathered the momentum needed to launch this heroic effort last year with The Peace Project’s Call for Artists. This competition, the submission fees and the resulting sales from exhibit artwork displayed were instrumental in funding the early days of The Peace Project.”


One of my pieces was also selected for last year’s Peace Project 2010—

Inner Peace II, 12in x 12in, 2010

Last year was the first year for this project, and their philanthropic efforts seem to be growing steadily.
