peace medals

"an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind






Anti-War Medals was first shown in San Francisco in November 2003 as a response to the War in Iraq. The exhibition then toured during 2004 and 2005, adding new pieces in each country where the show appeared. The expanded exhibition with 200 artists from 16 countries returned to Velvet da Vinci in Novmber 2005 as a response to the ongoing war and occupation in Iraq.

The exhibition has now been revivied at Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O in Now Orleans with some of the original pieces and many new ones reflecting the continuing war, destruction and frustration with U.S. involvement in the war in Iraq.
