Art Miles in Italy

Art Miles is recognized as a major project in support of UNESCO's International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non Violence Among Children Organization

More than 40,000 people from 100+countries, including those with disabilities and special needs, have completed over 1,300 murals. A large emphasis is placed on encouraging children to paint murals and the project is officially recognized as a vital contribution of arts in support of the UNESCO Decade for the Culture of Peace and Non Violence Among Children of the World, the UN Millennium Development Goals, and the Convention for the Rights of the Child.

 

The Art Miles Mural Project consists of twelve one mile long acrylic painted murals on canvas involving twelve distinct themes—The Multicultural Diversity Mile, The Environmental Mile, Sports, Music, Women, Senior, Celebrity, Fairy Tale, Peace, Unity and Healing, Mentor, and The Indigenous Peoples Mile. Each of these murals is twelve foot (12’) long by five foot (5’) wide. There are 440 canvasses per mile and a total of 5,280 murals will be joined together .

The Art Miles Mural Project forms collaborations with numerous organizations, groups, conference support organizations, hospitals, foundations, and educational and cultural entities within different countries. One of these organizations is the International Education and Resource Network (iEARN)(www.iearn.org) and Art Miles is one of their 85 collaborative art projects. Art Miles has recently established a contact with an Italian representative in that country who lives in Narnia, Italy, geographically located outside of Rome and of which the C.S.Lewis "Narnia" books and films were developed around.
