An exhibit asking “What Does Peace Mean to You?”
By St. Paul artist John Noltner
Monday, February 9 until Monday, February 23 in the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Lobby, and satellite locations across campus.
A Peace of My Mind is a multimedia art project that fosters public dialogue about issues related to conflict resolution, civic responsibility, and peace. With engaging portraits and compelling personal stories, more than fifty subjects describe what peace means to them, how they work toward it in their lives, and some of the obstacles they encounter along the way.
Those profiled include Holocaust survivors and a homeless man, a Somali refugee and a military chaplain, a pottery instructor and an oil company executive. Artists, volunteers, politicians, and business leaders all share their thoughts and inspiring stories in a series that celebrates our common experience and sense of community.
Banners with individual portraits and stories will be on view in the OSF Library Lobby and in satellite locations across the St. Paul campus. Several programs will gather the St. Thomas community to engage in conversations about the meaning of peace. QR codes on the banners will allow smartphone users to access podcasts, video interviews, and other online resources.
