on Friday,April 30,2010 21:04
A new online photo exhibition is taking advantage of technology to bring murals with a message of peace to a wide range of people across the world.
The 24-hour, Photo Mural-thon will stream images of murals painted by participants in the Art Miles Mural Project on the website UStream. The project has facilitated the painting of large murals by children across the world, promoting a creative community, including a 12-mile painting in Egypt.
John Brown, one of the project's organizers, said that the Mural-thon would help the organization bring its message of peace to a greater number of people.
"If art reflects life, then this art can help any viewer value life," he said. "People have told me that seeing these murals makes them thankful for their lives and hopeful for the lives of others."
So far, the project has helped more than 500,000 children around the world to produce more than 4,000 canvas murals.
