Missing Peace

Missing Peace

The Missing Peace Project is an international exhibition titled, The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama with over 88 of the best artists around the globe contributing their work towards the effort. Together, the Committee of 100 for Tibet and the Dalai Lama Foundation wanted a “unique opportunity to explore the idea of art as an interpretation of, and a catalyst for, peace.”

Now that's what I call a mission statement.

above: if you can't make it to the exhibit, purchase the book.

Shop Friend Gary and director, Darlene, stopped in recently to say hello and their warmth and passion for this project could not be more inspiring. Our shop is participating on the opening day of the exhibit at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Sharon Stone will be master of ceremonies at the Gala and participating shops will donate 10% of all purchases Friday, November 30th. So please stop by our boutique and contribute some of your shopping karma!

I saw this at the Rubin in NY a few months ago and it was great. I'm going to take my folks to the SF one when they visit.
