Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by two Art teachers from Florida as a way for their students to meditate on Peace and share their ideas about Peace with their communities.
This project serves as a visual reminder of World Peace Day, September 21st. This day of peace was first celebrated in 1981 and is now observed by people around the world. To inaugurate the day, the “Peace Bell” is rung at UN Headquarters. The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents…The inscription on its side reads: “Long live absolute world peace.”
This was Archway’s first year of participation and will undoubtedly become a tradition.
