Seeing Peace

In commemoration of the third anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, artist-activist Richard Kamler discusses his visionary initiative "Seeing Peace, Artists Collaborate with the United Nations." Asking what would have happened had Picasso painted Guernica before the bombs fell, Kamler and his collaborators are working with the U.N. to create an event for International Peace Day (September 21) in 2005. One artist from each U.N. member nation will attend a special session of the General Assembly devoted to art and peace. An accompanying exhibition is planned for San Francisco.
