Our goals are:
1. To shift the world's attention towards peace.
2. To provide the participating artists with an inspiring concept, and give them total creative freedom to interpret it.
3. To create a significant, international exhibition for an international audience.
4. To find ways in which the project can have extended meaning in people's everyday lives before, during and after the exhibition, in each country and community, and for people of all ages.
DATES: The exhibition has previously been shown at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco from December 1, 2007 thru March 16, 2008. It was at Emory University.in October, 2007, and in New York City at the Rubin Museum of Art (RMA) in collaboration with the School of Visual Arts (SVA) earlier in 2007.
It will be accompanied by a catalog featuring each piece of art, including quotes from the Dalai Lama and the artists. The Dalai Lama Foundation has provided a set of learning modules and curriculum correlated with the exhibition. We would also like to produce a DVD and other educational tools.
An auction of the original art will be held following the exhibitions, and the works will be available for sale. The artists are contributing their work to the C100 and the DLF, both non-profit organizations, to further their work.
