Art of Peace Charitable Trust
Transforming Weapons of War Into Angels of Peace

 While Lin Evola’s visions are ethereal; her goals are earthbound. She is renowned for her New York Renaissance Peace Angel, a thirteen-foot sculpture ensconced in the World Trade Center recovery area following September 11, 2001. The New York Renaissance Peace Angel is a Promised Gift to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. She is now in the process of creating the thirty-foot New York Peace Angel Monument and has been asked to create Peace Angel sculptures for: Los Angeles, California, Johannesburg, South Africa; Sarajevo, Bosnia/Herzegovina; and for Jerusalem, Israel.

The mission of the Art of Peace Charitable Trust is to achieve lasting peace through innovative and durable approaches to weapons reduction by advancing active social-change initiatives in neighborhoods, communities and nations. Its measures include preventing, combating and eradicating the proliferation of small firearms, light artillery and other weapons of war which contribute to, and sustain, ongoing conflicts and persistent cultures of violence throughout the world.

Through proper law enforcement and government agencies, the Art of Peace Charitable Trust collects street weapons, processed decommissioned nuclear missile casings, land mines, parts of cluster bombs and other arms, melts them down and casts epic Peace Angel Monuments from the molten metal mixture using a unique proprietary process. Through this process, the Trust facilitates the permanent destruction of these tools of devastation, permanently transforming them into magnificent icons of peace.

Each Peace Angel Monument, strategically installed at various locations desiring conflict resolution, stand as an inspirational symbol and a universal testament to man’s enduring quest for peace and the ability to overcome irreconcilable differences.

Ms. Evola’s efforts on behalf of worldwide weapons reduction and global peace are endorsed by the United Nations Departments of Disarmament in New York and in Geneva, Switzerland. She is lauded for her endeavors by Archbishop Desmund Tutu, former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and former President Clinton, as well as by Commissioner Raymond Kelly NYPD and Sheriff Lee Baca LASD. Ms. Evola works
with both the Police Athletic League in New York and the
Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater Los Angeles in respect to programs for gang related youth.

Lin Evola’s paintings and sculptures have been displayed in solo exhibitions in museums and galleries in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, London and Paris. She has a Masters of Fine Arts from San Francisco Art Institute and serves as the Artist-in-Residence for both the Praxis Peace Institute in Dubrovnik, Croatia, and for the Wilgespruit Fellowship Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her “Spirit of Africa” PeaceAngel will grace an entire mountaintop in Johannesburgallocated by the South African Nobel Laureates’ Peace
Memorial and the Academy at Wilgespruit.

A recipient of many prestigious honors and awards, including a commission from Mr. Harry Belafonte’s distinguished organization for the Sankofa Urban Peace Award, she was a nominee for the International Peace Award in 2004, and was presented with the Council for Unity Peace Maker Award in2008. The National Arts Club in New York City has presented her the rare honor of Artist Life Member.
Peace Angels are owned by: President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton; Her Majesty Queen Noor al Hussein of Jordan; former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, the National Arts Club; Sarah Brady; The Joseph Campbell Foundation; Marion Rockefeller Weber; Vera Pratt and Anne Cooling. Her works are also exhibited at The Liberty National Museum
in Philadelphia, PA; the Harvard School of Public Health,thanks to Deborah Prothrow-Stith, M.D. Stanford University’s Hoover Institute has worked with Ms. Evola dedicating their PhD program to create a marketing manifest for the Trust.

The AOPCT partners with a diverse range of donors, public and private organizations and concerned citizens who share its commitment to improve society. It collaborates with relevant local, national and international government agencies, community organizations and academic institutions and selectively supports conflict resolution, peace-building and economic revitalization programs (such as hydroponicvertical farms creating job opportunities for youth at risk)
to empower people to become innovative agents for peace.
