Children’s Dreams of Peace
This was a unique exhibition that we put on in 2013 in conjunction with the Israeli Embassy in Slovakia and Bibiana, the International House of Art for Children. The exhibition came about as a result of a project by the innovative and creative teacher from New York Maureen Kushner. Children, living in Israel of different nationalities, and religions and speaking different languages created, in their workshops, murals and pictures about war and peace. The message of peace, tolerance, and hope expressed in their artistic works could be seen by more than 20 million people in the USA, Canada, and Europe, and eventually even by visitors to the Piešťany Town Library. The opening of the exhibition in Piešťany was also attended by representatives from the Israeli Embassy.
