The United Nations “Peace is… Unity”

The United Nations “Peace is… Unity”

I will be performing at the United Nations on Friday, June 16, 2017, 2-3pm at the UN Visitor’s Lobby. This will be a collaborative performance with Sahoko Sato Timpone (Mezzo-soprano). The overarching theme of this series of events is Peace. This month’s theme, within that, is “Sea and Wind”. I hope that you will be able to enjoy the opportunity to participate in this event by writing what peace means to you on a shell or a pebble, and placing it on the washi paper that I will be writing on for the performance.

— Over 1,000 years ago at Mount Koya, Japan, a monk named Kobo Daishi discovered the healing powers of the legendary Enmei herbs that have the effect of rejuvenating the skin.  I performed a large floor piece of calligraphy inspired by Mount Koya and created 6 canvas arts:  “Harmony”, “Zen”,  “Flow”, “Cherry Blossom”, “Harmony, Respect, Purity, Tranquility”, and “Moon” to be put on display and another 150 pieces to serve as giveaways for the guests.
