Letter to the Global Community
Visual Arts League (VAL)
is removing the boundaries around the classroom
This January 2003
VAL has invited Henry Sunderland (sculptor / artist ) in Christchurch, NZ
for a merging of shows,
"The Great Pipe Dream, NZ" with "PIPE DREAMS, NJ"
at the Cork Gallery Jan 9-21.
Seven Schools in New Zealand are sending pipe sculptures.
In May 2003,
VAL is welcoming the work of 100 artists from European countries
curated by Jean Pierre Gantois, Benac, France.
A painting we did (below)
with 19 little 4 yr olds is now a permanent installation
South Brunswick Public Library Children's Room, South Brunswick, NJ
along with the book where the children's piece is featured.
a poet/artist in Iceland is affecting children here!
(The Dalai Lama and Lawrence Ferlenghetti are in the same book.)
Very large endeavors can be levitated easily by many people,
and one thing leads to another.
When encouraging creativity in our communities,
there is NO competition..
we are all in this together.
We can send out a message of warmth
and good will via art.
Your help is always welcome in whatever form.
VAL Projects leap boundaries however we can.
Money is needed to support the arts,
but it is not only money we build with.
We put art to work.
If you clic on the links in the body of this letter,
you can send help to artists in New Zealand
and to Iceland
who are working towards world peace via the arts.
Peace and good will begin with us,
in each of our homes in all of our relationships.
Pipe Dreams begins a dream together,
reaching higher than where we are at.
