Terra Studios and Compassion Fayetteville and nineteen local artists have partnered to create eighteen individual 4’x4’ panels for a very special 32’ x 12’ “Better World Mural” to be permanently installed at Terra Studios. The purpose of the “Better World Mural” is to educate and inspire individuals to take action in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and of the Charter for Compassion.
The Event: The celebration and unveiling of the Better World Mural will be on April 13 at 12:30 pm. The program will begin with a musical prelude by John Two-Hawks, a short program including remarks by Fayetteville mayor Lioneld Jordan and the Rev. Lowell Grisham. A reception will follow the unveiling with refreshments and music by Kelly & Donna Mulhollan and Elizabeth Scott & Diana Welch. The event is free and open to the public. A facebook event page has been set up: https://www.facebook.com/events/1294015667416675/
About the Project: The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit, mobilize efforts to end extreme poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind. The Charter for Compassion is based on the principle of compassion which lies at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions, calling us always to treat all others as we wish to be treated ourselves. The Charter for Compassion is concerned with understanding and acting on compassion for self, others and the earth. For more understanding and information, this very short You Tube video (we the people for the global goals) explains the WHY of this venture. Approximately thirty donors, small local businesses and the participating artists have sponsored the mural project.
The artists: Matt Miller, Jaquita Ball, Suzie Sanford, Obed Gonzalez, Carol Hart, Valerie Hubbard Damon, Trent Talley, Olivia Trimble, Eugene Sargent, Octavio Logo, Xi Krump, Brandon Bullette, Susan Crabtree, Jason Jones, Amy Eichler, Lisa Crews, Drew Gentle & Cathrin Yoder, and Susan Idlet.
