The Art Miles Mural Project

I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday! About a week ago, our town was host to a Peace Fair that featured The Art Miles Mural Project. It was a very enjoyable way to spend the afternoon ~ especially as this was before the heat wave hit us, and the weather was perfect. The Art Miles Mural Project is a twelve-year movement that combines the efforts of children and adults worldwide to promote global peace and harmony through mural art. To date, over 4,000 murals have been created in villages, towns and cities around the world. Some are "traveling murals," which is what was on display here. There were other arts and crafts for sale at the event, music from the '60s filled the air, and lots of tie dye was on hand, too - all a reminder of "the peace and love generation!" It just felt really good to be part of a day dedicated totally to peace and harmony. The following are some of the murals on display. The only problem ~ they didn't have them marked as to what country they're from.












The photos (above and below) are part of the mural that was created by our town's Middle School students. (I couldn't get the whole thing in one shot.)
 

Tie Dye!

This reminds me so much of my gradeschool days. We used to have a poster making contest. And let's just say, it's better to keep my hands writing than to hold a paint brush lol!

Thanks for sharing this at Passion Parade.

Hm, wonder how I missed that one when it posted - well glad I found it today through Outdoor Wednesday at least!

Wow the amazing colours those kids put together - and the tie dye, what fun.

Haven't seen colours like that since I last saw The Deada zillion years ago. (Good times.)
