Postscript III: Last day of the International Day of Peace Art Show

The group art exhibit--What Does Peace Look like?--ends today.  As I mentioned in previous posts, for a variety of reasons, this was a challenging show to organize. It ran through the month of September at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center galleries and in conjunction with our festival during the International Day of Peace.

Here are a few remaining highlights.

A young man named Alejandro Lopez created this mask, How the Outsider Feels on the Inside as part of a high school project.

And a few other pieces:
