6X6 4 PEACE Movement
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 6X6 4 PEACE Project. We invited artists to create a painting on a six-inch-by-six-inch canvas 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 6X6 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. All of the proceeds from the 6X6 4 PEACE Project will be used to support AFWP’s NATIVE EYES Project for 2019.
Following on the success of our free eye clinics in Tanzania and at home in Middletown, Connecticut, AFWP’s eye care team began the NATIVE EYES Project on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. We will be holding our free eye clinic for the Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation in North Stonington, Connecticut, on October 6-7.
Submission must be 6"x6" stretched canvas.
