A bright candle for Peace

 

 

Picasso, Dove of Peace, 1949

 

 

Pippa Bacca, an Italian performance artist on a mission to promote peace and cultural understanding was murdered during her journey last spring.

Peace is one of the highest goals of art. May Pippa’s idealistic spirit always be remembered as well as her desire to bridge cultures. She did not see geographic boundaries as limiting; she saw the whole world as her home.

Home is a place where we can all live together in peace.
