    • Exhibit: The Colors of Peace - President Carter’s Vision through the Art of Children
      Exhibit October 1, 2022-January 31, 2023

      Ongoing: October 1, 2022 - January 31, 2023

      Bringing together 270+ artworks created by children from around the world, the exhibition is a celebration of the work of International Paint Pals and its peace-driven mission. Founded in 1995 as part of the Carter Center’s Atlanta Project, International Paint Pals started as a community arts initiative in south Atlanta. Since then, the organization has grown to work with over 200,000 children in more than 125 countries. Combining a simple pledge – “for the rest of my life, I promise to do everything I can to bring peace into our world” – and the creativity and imagination of children of all ages, the organization and the work it supports is a grassroots realization of one of former President Jimmy Carter’s initiatives, waging peace. This exhibition is also a call to action for visitors to be inspired by the artworks and to create and share their own.
