In 1992, Lin Evola founded the Peace Angels Project to address the epidemic of violence by reminding us of the responsibility we all share to create a better world, in part through efforts to reduce the flow of weapons to our streets and communities.
As an American contemporary Artist, Evola created the Project as a concept-driven, creative initiative that can both awaken us and stir us to action—sharing a life- affirming vision of Peace in our Time.
The weapons, which are destroyed and then turned into Peace Angel monuments forward a legacy of peace to our children and to all future generations.
Evola’s Renaissance Peace Angel is in the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. The Renaissance Peace Angel stands, in perpetuity, for Life.
