You Are Invited to the Dedication
Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at 10:00 am
Columbia Vista, 900 Senate St Median
(Between the SC Statehouse and the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center)
Masks and social distancing kindly requested.
The public is invited to attend a brief, outdoor dedication of the latest work of public art in Columbia, South Carolina. The eight-foot-tall peace pole, one of over 200,000 planted around the world, shares the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in eight languages. Local artist Eileen Blyth was commissioned by the Columbia Peace Pole Initiative, in collaboration with One Columbia for Arts and Culture. The artist has included a bell, which young and old may ring to signify their desire to actively work for peace in their communities and in the world. The Vista Peace Pole was funded by donations to the Columbia Peace Pole Initiative.
The Vista Peace Pole and names of donors will be included in One Columbia’s Public Art Directory ([email protected]).
