Global Art Peace Project Talk In-Person

Join Chestertown RiverArts volunteer Marianne Sade to learn about the Global Art Peace Project.

Marianne will speak about the project's history and answer questions against the backdrop of our community's 2022 contribution to this UNESCO Prize-nominated international art exchange for peace.

This free community program is open to everyone.
 
The artwork will be displayed in a special exhibit at Kent County Public Library's Chestertown Branch from April 1st-22nd.
After the display is taken down, the artwork will be sent to RiverArts' matched recipient across the world -- and eagerly await exchanged artwork in return!

ABOUT THE GLOBAL ART PROJECT FOR PEACE

Nominated for a UNESCO Prize, the Global Art Project is an international art exchange for peace which has involved 160,000 participants in 95 countries on seven continents.

Anyone can participate!

Here's how it works: Participants create a work of art in any medium, expressing their vision of global peace and goodwill. The art is displayed locally in each participant’s community. Global Art Project then organizes an international exchange by matching participants—group-to-group and individual-to-individual. The exchange occurs April 23-30 biennially, resulting in thousands of people sending messages of Peace around the world at one time—visions of unity simultaneously encircle the Earth. The art is sent as a gift of global friendship and exhibited in the receiving community.
