Western Addition Peace Wall

On June 9th, we gathered around the Western Addition Peace Wall on Page Street (at Buchanan) to celebrate the installation of the Western Addition Peace Wall.

This project has been 8 years in the making and anyone who's seen the wall can tell that it was worth it!

This beautiful Peace Wall is made up of over 8,000 tiles. The tiles were made by kids, neighbors, churches, schools and artists as a part of the Peace Empowerment Project. The artist Justine Tartarsky, created some larger tiles to complement and unite all the tiles. The wall wraps around Koshland Park like a long, beautiful ribbon.

At the Peace Wall Celebration many groups came together from the community for food, entertainment and to honor everyone who has died because of violence. If you haven't yet, be sure to stop by and visit this beautiful memorial and art installation.
