Like many of us, I feel as though humanity is hurdling toward some very troubling breaking points. About ten years ago in an almost foolhardy desire to find solutions to some of these vexing problems, I decided to start studying the lives of great peacemakers. Over the course of the last decade, I have studied three dozen of these luminaries, painting each as I progressed along this “arc of the moral universe” as Martin Luther King called it.
The collection of paintings has been reproduced along with information about the respective peacemakers in a traveling exhibit. The exhibit, which is design to educate, entertain, and inspire, includes a 30-minute audio tour. Visitors may also view videos of many of the paintings.
A book featuring a more in-depth discussion of the research and the lessons gleaned from the project is in progress. I am interested in collaborating with other artists and entrepreneurs in taking this project in directions that can help promote peace and collective well-being. ~ @TheGreatPeacemakers
