CHS Mural

Beyond War Mural

A group of Churchill High School students were inspired by paintings I had made for a sustainability conference, entitled the Hopes Mural. They wanted to equally inspire their fellow students to think about world peace and find ways to take action on the issue. They began to organize a Beyond War club at their school and one of its first major actions is to create a large scale mural in their school courtyard. The composition of the Churchill Beyond War mural will be very similar to the Hopes Mural (shown above) however some aspects of the design with be adapted to reflect the values and principles of Beyond War. For example the text in the piece will come from Beyond War, not the Clean Water Act. Also the images of fracking will be changed to images of weapons gradually transforming into more peaceful human tools. More content and design adjustments will be made when the students and artist are working together in the field.

My artwork focuses on the intersection of biology and art and I believe that images of nature help people find peace and meaning in the world. This design also reflects my belief that by shifting to more sustainable practices, the human race can move away from materially driven, war economies towards a more peaceful world community, in tune with caring for its myriad of peoples and living systems.

This is the design for the mural:

The principals of Beyond War are that 1) War is Obsolete, 2) We are One interdependent Whole, 3) The Means Are the Ends in the Making. These goals are achieved by developing the following practices: Maintaining a spirit of good will towards all (posing no enemies. Resolving coflict without using violence. Working together with others to build the world that works for all.

The Kickstarter webpage shows details and the video we created to try to raise funds for the project.

Thank you very much.
