For the first time in Mexico, the Peace Pals International Children’s Art Exhibition will launch a national tour, starting in April 2015 in Zihuatanejo, Guerrero. The art collection features works of youth from over 80 countries who have submitted their visions of peace. Each work highlights the message, “May Peace Prevail on Earth.” In Spanish, “Que la paz prevalezca en la tierra.”
The art exhibition is being organized by the World Peace Prayer Society in New York, and the Peace in Action Collaborative Education Group in Zihuatanejo, in collaboration with local businesses. The events will be both entertainment and fundraisers for educational projects and local charities.
The Peace Pals exhibition will premiere at Viceroy Hotel in Zihuatanejo on April 3, 2015, at 6:00 p.m.; and in Ixtapa at Capella Resort on April 11, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. Donations of $15 USD or $200 pesos are requested. Donated funds will be shared with Carol’s Rice and Beans nutritional program that helps to feed needy students in Zihuatanejo. The exhibition will tour the Zihuatanejo area and other destinations throughout Mexico.
“We are delighted to have this wonderful exhibit tour Mexico!” says Jules Lamore, Art Director for the Peace Pals Project for the World Peace Prayer Society in New York. “We are featuring these precious pieces representing the various cultures and traditions of the world.”
Each year, children are given a theme about peace. They compete in different age categories to express the theme and their visions of peace. Take a look at some of these masterpieces!
May Peace Prevail on Earth!
