 CITYarts’ Pieces for Peace Book Launch and Exhibition

with Youth from Around the World

at the United Nations 

CITYarts is proud to present the
 Pieces for Peace Traveling Exhibition at the United Nations headquarters, in collaboration with the United Nations Office
 for Partnerships and the United Nations Department of Public Information under the royal patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Women Establishment, wife of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Presidential Affair UAE.


Pieces for Peace with Youth from around the World
is CITYarts’ flagship international project under the
Young Minds Build Bridges
It aims to encourage cultural understanding between American youth and their peers around the world. Pieces for Peace invites youth to take responsibility and play an active role in shaping their future by asking themselves, “What does peace look like to me?” Since 2002, we have received over 3,000 artworks from 50 schools in 37 countries, with more artworks being submitted each month. Thinking globally and acting locally, our hope is that youth in each country will create their own “piece for peace” at on-site workshops led by artists or teachers. Two Peace Walls already exist in Harlem, New York and Karachi, Pakistan, and a new Peace Wall will be created at each destination of the exhibition.


CITYarts recently self-published an interactive Peace Book, launched in conjunction with this exhibition, which highlights student artworks and the creative process of this ongoing international project.

Since 1968, CITYarts has empowered youth to make a difference in their lives and in their communities through the creation of public art. Please visit for more information.

 This exhibition first opened in New York in 2005 at the Freedom Festival at Flushing Town Hall celebrating 300 nationalities in Queens. It then traveled to The Cork Gallery at Lincoln Center and other locations in New York and New Jersey. Internationally, the exhibition has traveled to Germany, Egypt, Israel, and Spain. Most recently, it was on display at the European Parliament building in Brussels, Belgium in October 2009. Plans are being made to have the exhibition travel to China, Korea, Malta, Dubai, and London over the next three years. This exhibition includes a selection of highlighted artworks.


“The United Nations is an ideal location for this exhibition, a place where representatives from around the world work for a common goal. We hope that international Ambassadors will see the potential power of these creative minds and be inspired to bring CITYarts’ project to schools and youth organizations in their countries and help us continue to spread this youth movement for peace to every country in the world.”

-- Tsipi Ben-Haim, Executive & Artistic Director, CITYarts
