Peace Artist Gifts Half A Million Works of Art

April 23rd, a little after lunch. 1991. That was the moment Joe Murphy, decided that he would make something for peace. The details weren’t clear to him at the time, but he knew that it would be something symbolic of connection, a chain of sorts. He knew that he would create small art pieces, and that he would give them away, and that he would do this for the rest of his life. This idea evolved into the exquisite Peace Chains: a continuing series of ceramic pendants in vivid hues, each with the word “peace” etched into it in one of over 90 different languages. To date Joe has gifted over half a million of them to people all over the world. This catchy, foot-tapping video captures his work-of-heart in action. { read more }
