Join the Movement! AFWP is building a “Wall of Peace”
The second round is open!
The Artists for World Peace 6×6 4 Peace Project:
Bringing free eye care to thousands of Native Americans
In September of 2017, through the vision of AFWP’s founder Wendy Black-Nasta, Artists for World Peace launched its 6×6 4 PEACE Project. We invited artists to create a painting on a six-inch-by-six-inch canvases that they would then donate to AFWP. The response has been overwhelming. In just three weeks AFWP received 1,500 canvases from artists throughout the United States, with hundreds of artists waiting for the next round of submissions. What began as a project is quickly becoming a movement— a “Wall of Peace,” displaying thousands of 6×6 canvases; a symbol of peace, unity, and hope.
AFWP will be selling these donated works of art through its on-line gallery and at “pop-up” galleries throughout the country. Find out where you can purchase a painting on our EVENTS page. All of the proceeds from the 6×6 4 PEACE Project will be used to support AFWP’s NATIVE EYES Project for 2018. Following on the success of our free eye clinics in Tanzania and at home in Middletown, Connecticut, AFWP’s eye care team will begin the NATIVE EYES Project on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota, and the Eastern Pequots in North Stonington, Connecticut.
We are very excited to open the second round of canvas submissions.
