RICHARD KAMLER, Artist; Professor of Art, University of San Francisco
BILL OWENS, Photographer; Author
KARRIE HOVEY, Artist
Additional Panelists TBA

On the fifth anniversary of the Iraq war, artists will meet to talk about the power of "Peace through Art." These images create a vision of the peace that we don't have and hope to inspire the hope to work toward it. The artists will share why they believe it is important for us to change our story to one of peace, not war, and explain how they are making that change through their art. This program is presented in conjunction with a private, multimedia exhibit of peace art during March. During the post-program reception, artists will discuss inspiration and the role of art in their search for peace.
