Dayton Art Institute Peace Pole

In 2014, the first official year of Peace Dayton, a collaboration between the Dayton Art Institute, the Dayton International Peace Museum, and Dayton Friendship Force resulted in a prime position for a Peace Pole — May Peace Prevail on Earth! Attending adults listened to the guitar-works of local musician Jim McCutcheon and then-Executive Director of the Dayton Peace Museum, Jerry Leggett. The Peace Pole was donated by long-time Friendship Force member Jean Comer. Children decorated the Peace Pole with Peace Wind Pinwheels based on a design provided by the Miami Valley Crime Prevention Association, an initiative by Good Samaritan Hospital. Peace Collaboration at its finest!
