International Peace Day Art Exhibit
Posted on July 27th, 2017

​The Guilford Parks and Recreation Department and Guilford Youth & Family Services are pleased to announce their commitment to the United Nation’s International Day of Peace on September 21st.  In celebration of this Day we will be coordinating a town-wide Art Exhibit.  We are seeking artists of all ages to participate.  The theme for this year’s International Peace Day is:
Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All
The International Day of Peace was first created in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly as a day to celebrate peace among all.  Again in 2001, the General Assembly designated the day as a day of non-violence.  Each year, communities are encouraged to participate and show their commitment to Peace.
Over the past 7 years, a moment of silence has taken place on the Guilford Green with churches ringing their bells in unison to celebrate the day. This year, the peace celebrations will take place at 4:00 PM on the Guilford Green. All are welcome!
Rules for the art contest:

All ages are encouraged to participate
Theme:  Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for all
Art can be submitted on paper, canvas, photography (up to 18 x 24)
Submissions to be received by Ellen Clow, Recreation Supervisor, by Thursday, September 7th  at the Community Center, 32 Church St. Guilford, CT 06437.
