Major New York City ART Critic Jerry Saltz of New York Magazine endorses Peace Walkway project as major artwork
The Peace Walkway project is a simple vision of locating one, mile-long peace art monument in 100 different locations (cities, towns, and parks etc.) around the world. Each peace walkway monument is one mile long, made up of 250 different bronze plaques commemorating major world heroic peacemakers - men and women whose courage and commitment to our greater humanity have changed our lives forever.
Our free global walkway app offers full bios for each peacemaker and the ability for anyone at one walkway location to connect and chat to another person at any of the installed monuments in the world. Thus everyone using the app gets to build a powerful global conversation with others towards a greater understanding of our common human values and life needs. A 21st century world of peace extending beyond all borders. All teaching peace making.
Give your town, city, campus or park a unique place & future in the world with global interconnected reality. Your city is most likely a "Sister City International" for help. Got a mile, kilometer for peace nearby?
Our app is easy to use for all smart phones. Just point it at any given plaque, and its 3D map of each and every installed plaque reads the plaque and gives you the entire biographical background on that world activist and role model.
Click on the app, and its GPS knows right where you are, and will connect you to the GPS location of all other peace walkways worldwide. Pick one, chat, share your walk and what you have learned, with someone thousands of miles away.
Another feature is access to information for all peace events taking place year-round globally, so that local becomes global, and global becomes local.
Billion Acts For Peace, backed by seven Nobel Peace Prize Laureates and Google, is activated every time you visit a peace walkway. Push their button to record on their site every walk you take at a peace walkway, thus driving their goal of one billion acts for peace up. How many peaceful walks will you take and add to build world peace?
This is the easy monument you do not just "see"; each of the installations is expected to have its own "local look" as conceived by your architects and planners.. It's an easy "add to or add in" to ongoing construction or parks projects. They can be installed in a circle, a spiral, around the border of a park or city block area to take up less space and yet still be a mile long. Because Local becomes global this builds full community promotion and economic impact, bringing local and international tourism spending. Public funding for art, health, walking and true civic improvements of value are everywhere - start your own grassroots effort. Join our global viral movement, and ask:
Why isn't this in your life, your city for a shared future?
Artist and sculptor Paul-Felix Montez USA: “Everywhere I looked were endless war monuments, but how many for peace? That was the start of this effort.” He brings over 35 years of creating large scale sculptures, sets, special effects design, and feature film sculptural prop making to the project. Recently he was a finalist of UCLA's TED talks, based upon his past works and the ideas and insights generated by the Peace Walkway project. Topic: "Will future smart cities and the internet of things become wise cities for nurturing people, and if so, how?". His fine art site: SculptureNew - Gary Jackson of Monumental Sculptures USA is a fabricator of large scale sculptures in bronze and steel for public art installations worldwide. He handles all casting and manufacture of the walkway plaques. Site:MonumentalSculptures I want to thank so many other volunteers, who believe in this project deeply, for bringing it life.
