REACH OUT

My Vision of Peace
There is power and beauty in joining hands as artists of change.

On (and off) the Wall: not just in galleries, not just as an idea, but taking it to the streets: a simple message with a vision for the future.

Hands: all colors, all races, all creeds.

The White Dove: the cross-cultural symbol of peace that rises above all boundaries, languages, ideologies.

Reach Out: making the effort, both individually and together, to create a better world.

So REACH OUT and MAKE some PEACE!

(This image was created by Marcel Mindlin and Liz Beckman)

A collaging of painting, photography and typography: Multiple layers, some found, some created; composited in photoshop to produce the final image.

Love the feel and look of the imagery~ Very urban and speaks volumes across the lines both culturally and geographically~

Thanks, Lisa! (so leave a 'Like' pretty please?!).
PS: for some reason, in the process of submitting the image, the background colors darkened much more than we see on our computer screen, causing the words to 'pop' a lot whiter and brighter. As originally created, the colors are very vivid and saturated and the lettering integrates smoothly with the rest, only slightly brighter than the dove. If possible, I'll try to adjust and repost. Peace, love & thanks! Marcel

Reach Out reminds me of some of the artwork I saw on the Berlin Wall. Your vision of peace encompasses taking art to the streets and your message as artists of change is powerful and beautifully rendered. Thank you for reaching out and Making Peace. I love it!

What a fantastic collaboration Marcel and Liz! I love the dove at the top of the image taking flight. The colors --though you say are darker here than in the original work-- are beautiful. Well done!

White doves really are the universal symbol of peace -- this is very appropriate as the dominant image. Also love the multi-colored hands representing all of us (humanity) -- reaching for the white dove of peace. I also like the "motion" represented by the bird in flight. Very nice image!

Wow, this is a beautiful image. I love the styling and the way it makes me feel. I also love the call to action. It helps me remember that it's each of our responsibility to reach out to others and make connection. Bravo!
