I am passing along this information even though, as you read on, you will see that it is not current. It has come to my attention that the project is ongoing, and artists throughout the world are invited to participate. In fact, the “black box” containing the instructions has arrived in Rochester. If it is of interest to the group, I can arrange to have it presented at a Tuesday morning meeting.
It is my understanding that there is no financial requirement to participate. When your project is finished, the box is sent on to another artist.
The goal is to have participation in every nation in the world. I am seriously considering doing one myself. I do not have all the answers, but the box comes with an explanatory CD. If anyone, or the group, is interested I can be reached at:

“We must make this new century a century of peace and dialogue.” – the Dalai Lama
The Missing Peace will touch millions and give people the opportunity to think about, talk about, experience, and create peace.
