Pinwheels for Peace

Recommended Posts

Found out about this and think it is a super idea! I am going to have our residents do this. Thought you all might be interested in it as well.

 

Was thinking about for those that do not want to make them maybe sell them and send the money to feed the hungry or USO of something like that. Check it out!

 

Any thoughts suggestions?

Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by two Art teachers, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan, who teach at Monarch High School in Coconut Creek, Florida, as a way for their students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives. The project was quickly embraced by their students and the entire school community and by millions of art teachers, teachers, parents, children and adults who desire peace in our world.

 

 

 

The first Pinwheels for Peace were installed on Sept. 21, 2005. Since then, we have grown from 500,000 pinwheels planted the first year, to 2 million pinwheels in 2008!

 

 

 

Please plan to join us again, on Sept. 21, 2009, as we once again celebrate International Day of Peace with "whirled peace!"

 

 

 

To learn about International Day of Peace, visit Peace One Day and International Day of Peace.

 

 

 

Although the project was originally conceived as a way for students to express their feelings, we are hoping that artists, non-artists, young people and not-so-young people - EVERYONE- participates. Peace is something that we all yearn for...

What a FANTASTIC idea!! I love it. I think we are going to start making them in September and incorperate staff as well and plant them all together (staff and residents) on Sept 21- make it an activity for everyone. I think I might buy a BOOK of scrapbooking paper and purchase some skewers. Oh, I am excited, this sounds like fun.
