Art Exhibit Focuses On Dalai Lama To Inspire Peace

CBS, October 27, 2006

Exhibit Opens This Weekend

Chicago, USA -- A new art exhibit on the Magnificent Mile uses the images and life of a world icon to inspire messages of peace.

The exhibit is entitled, “The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama.” It focuses on images of the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism and the need for peace in the world.

The Loyola University Museum, at 820 N. Michigan Ave. of art is hosting the show, which features the paintings, drawings and photos of 88 artists from around the world.

The exhibit opens to the public this weekend.

The currently serving 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.

The Web site for the exhibit says, "With the full life of the Dalai Lama as inspiration, the intention for this project is to shift the world's attention towards peace."

"Peace starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us. When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities," the Dalai Lama is quoted on the exhibit Web site.

Among the artists who are participating in the exhibit are photographers Richard Avedon, Michal Rovner and Adam Fuss; painter and visual artist Ken Aptekar; multimedia artist Laurie Anderson; painter Guy Buffet; video artist Bill Viola; and avant-garde artists Jenny Holzer.
