for the United States.
The Worldwide Peace Marker Project is a work of global
installation art which embraces a vision of world peace and creates
a network of prominent international artists who are all committed
to working towards peace. The project, created by artist, Tiite,

musicians, sculptors, videographers, poets and dancers unite in
a common vision of a peaceful Earth, environmental stewardship,
world health, global cooperation and tolerance. For more info: www.WPMP.net
