Swords into Ploughshares: The Peace Angel Project


December 2015

One of our very favorite art concepts is Lin Evola’s Peace Angel Project.   Lin and her work are long known to Global Action. In fact, her art adorns some issues of the Arms Trade Treaty Monitor that we produced in 2012 and 2013 in association with Reaching Critical Will.

Among its many extraordinary features is the premise of the art and its chosen materials:  The project serves as a reminder of the worldwide epidemic of violence and our responsibility to create a better world by using the melted down stainless core of decommissioned missiles and other weapons to create powerful images of peace and unity.

Lin’s work is now being featured in a show entitled “World on Fire” at Studio Vendome in New York City where we were honored to be present for her opening. “As our world continues to be faced with horrific acts against humanity, the Peace Angel Project mission has never been more important,” said Evola. “As we move into the holiday season, it is my hope that this artwork will serve as an inspiration to tap into the best of the human condition, by rising above violence and standing for peace.”

We know that Lin will have many more opporunities to share her stunning art and, surely as important, the deep messages of peace that her works embody. We hope to be with her every step of the way.
