The Peace Exchange is an international exchange of art and messages of peace. In this one-to-one exchange, students are asked to artistically express their vision of peace as well as share a message about what peace means on their personal peace card.
Community Mural making is a perfect way to engage a large group in the creation of a large-scale work of art. Three project types provide groups the opportunity to design, vision, and create an uplifting and beautiful mural together.
Richmond resident creates peace through transformative art
Like many creative firebrands before him, Ross Holzman found his inspiration in India. The East Richmond Heights resident, artist and founder/executive director of the San Francisco-based nonprofit Create Peace Project — responsible for peace-inspiring art projects internationally as well as right here in downtown Richmond — moved here five years ago after stints living in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
“We wanted to be closer to nature,” said Holzman of his decision to relocate to Richmond, and “having Wildcat Canyon in the backyard is really nice.”
But it was Holzman’s time living in India that proved truly transformative toward his life’s calling.
