An anti-war online exhibition


Dear friend,

We're coming up to year's end and the holiday season is upon us. But while many of us celebrate, the prospects for 2007 are not bright. In Darfur the bloodshed goes on unabated; in the Gaza Strip a shaky cease-fire is in force, but the killing hasn't stopped; in Lebanon civil conflict threatens at any moment to slide into open violence.

In this bleak outlook, it is up to us as artists to look beyond our immediate concerns and take a broader view of our tormented world. As the cannons continue to roar, the Muses must not remain silent ! Our creativity must protest at death and destruction !

Therefore please join our initiative for a permanent exhibition - international and online - of artists against the war. Visit our website at Let-The-Muses-Speak-IAA.org and see that dozens of artists have responded to our appeal by sending in work for display. We hope you too will be inspired to take part in the project.

Join us today !

Best wishes for the festive season and a Happy New Year for 2007..!


Distribute this invitation widely across the art world.

anti-war exhibition on the Internet

Let the Muses drown out the cannon's roar !"

An anti-war exhibition on the Internet

A newly launched website presents an anti-war exhibition by artists from across the globe. The site is the initiative of the committee of AIA (the international art federation). Challenging the well-worn cliche' that "when the cannons roar, the Muses fall silent", the site represents the contrary appeal: "Let the Muses drown out the cannon's roar !"

The initiative was prompted by the Lebanon fighting, but even after the cease-fire went into effect, the site continues to operate and grow. "The battles in the north have halted for the present, but in Gaza ,Occupied Palestinian Territories and numerous places around the world, the bloodshed goes on ,It is the duty of the global artist community to stand up against the killing and the indifference, and support a just peace and international understanding."

The appeal has evoked a rapid and enthusiastic response. The site already exhibits the work of artists from 18 lands, and more are joining every day.

The exhibit can be viewed at : www.let-the-muses-speak-iaa.org

The site welcomes artists from every domain of visual art, and a new section extends to poetry and letters.
