The Peace Project

Reception: Friday, November 8, 5 - 7 p.m.
(Free and open to the public)

The Peace Project has been an 18 month journey where community members, Virginia Tech students, faculty and staff were invited to create simple drawings on blank puzzles of their visions of peace.  Installed on wooden pillars (pillars of peace), the puzzles represent the cumulative effect of many working together to create a unified vision of how we can all be a piece of the solution to world peace.


During the exhibition patrons will be invited to add dialogue to the installation through a collaborative writing venture linking thoughts on peace.
