Windows to Peace Community Celebration

Al-Aqsa Islamic Society, ArtWell and the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program hosted a community celebration May 21 along with a dedication to the “Windows to Peace” mural, a sequel project to the 2004 collaboration that brought together the three partners to create the “Doorways to Peace” mural.

Now, more than 10 years later, our three organizations have reunited with original school partners John Moffet Elementary and La Salle Academy to engage again by refurbishing the original work and creating new work to grace the walls of Al-Aqsa, led by artist Parris Stancell and through poetry and tile-making workshops led by Joe Brenman, Cathy Cohen and ArtWell teaching artists.
