The Peace Billboard project asked 10 visual artists from 10 member states of the United Nations to imagine what peace looks like, from their unique cultural perspectives. On May 26th, 2008, their visions were displayed on full size outdoor billboards all over San Francisco. The aim of this project was to incite members of our community to imagine for themselves their own vision of peace. Because if we cannot first imagine peace, we may never make it so.
The following images are the artist's depictions of peace. Please click each photo to enlarge, and once enlarged, roll over the image to read the artist statements and bios for each artist.
