Join the Global Art Collaborative!

Faces without Places is participating in the 2014 Global Art Project.  You can show your support for a more peaceful world by creating and submitting an original miniature work of art.
The mission of the Global Art Project is to joyously create a culture of peace through art. The Project celebrates diversity and multiculturalism while expressing the idea: We Are All One.  The artwork that you help to create will be sent as a gift of global friendship and exhibited in a receiving community.  On April 23, 2014, thousands of people will be sending messages of Peace around the world—visions of unity will simultaneously encircle the Earth.

Faces without Places is joining these efforts by collaborating with schools, shelters and other community organizations to explore the concept: Home, What It Means To Me.  We are asking that you join us by creating an original piece of artwork, which visually represents a place you call home. Ultimately, our goal is to get community members thinking about their feelings regarding housing and what it would be like to be without what we consider a universal human right. 

We Invite You to Add Your Voice and Help Us to
Create a Beautiful Piece of Artwork!

Create:  A 5”x7” original piece of artwork that depicts “What Home Means to Me” 

For installation purposes, the image should be created on cardstock, depicted vertically and please leave 1” of your piece blank at the top. Three-dimensional pieces will not be accepted.
On the back of the artwork, please share your thoughts regarding the idea that housing is a universal human right.

Submit:  All artwork should be mailed by March 17, 2014 and include your contact information. (Please note, submissions constitute permission for Faces without Places to use your artwork and artwork will not be returned.)
