Art Challenges Nukes
Celebrity Charities – Academy Award winner Michael Douglas is promoting the global United Nations “Art for Peace” contest and is calling on young artists ages 5-17 from around the world to use their creative talents to envision what a world would be like without nuclear weapons.
Douglas, who has served as a United Nations Messenger of Peace since 1998, wants children to “draw, paint, or sketch their visions of a world without nuclear weapons, bombs or wars.”
“Art is the universal language; art speaks to our hearts and minds; art can make a difference and so can you,” Douglas said.
This contest does more than promote a child’s creativity, it sends a strong message that children deserve a future free from the fear of nuclear annihilation. Art truly knows no boundaries and can bring cultures together at the stroke of a brush.
