The community of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo welcomes the Ambassador of Peace Art Collection, which is now on tour for the first time in Mexico! The collection has been donated to the Zihuatanejo Peace Committee to be used in schools, the cultural center, and other facilities throughout the community.
The Peace Pals international Art exhibition and Awards started in 1997, inviting children from around the world to submit artwork in the spirit of the Universal Message of Peace, May Peace Prevail on Earth. The collection features the artwork of youth from each of the eighty-six 86 countries who have submitted their creations over the years.
Ambassador of Peace Art Collection opened at the museum in Zihuatanejo in February. It will now tour schools throughout the community.
Ms. Fumi Johns, Executive Director of the World Peace Prayer Society that manages the art exhibition program was in Zihuatanejo for the grand opening of the tour. She explained that each year, the art contest has a theme, such as “My Hero.” The children express their visions of peace through art. Ms. Johns donated the art collection to the Zihuatanejo Peace Committee.
