World Peace Mural Tour - Summer 2017

$370 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 8 people in 23 days
Renda Writer  MIAMI, FL
My name is Renda Writer, and I am a Mural Artist based in Miami, FL. I conceived the idea for The World Peace Mural Tour in April of 2016 and have created 30 murals since then, including 29 murals in 10 states and 17 cities across America and 1 in Mexico, in the country's capital, Mexico City. 


This Summer, my plan is to expand the growing mural portfolio by creating new murals in Florida, North Carolina, Texas, New Mexico, and California.

Conceptually, the idea behind each Mural is quite simple. I write "World Peace" over and over, until the entire wall or building is filled up, creating a "Handwritten Mural." 

Each mural is different as far as colors, patterns, and layout, but each is the same in serving as a visually appealing piece of public art that reintroduces the idea of "World Peace" into the global conversation.

The world needs this message right now.  We all know this.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world."

(This quote is a big part of my inspiration for creating this tour.  I wrote it on the World Peace Mural in Detroit.)

The World Peace Mural Tour is seeking $7,500 to fund it's Summer 2017 travel plans, which will include the creation of new World Peace Murals in:



1) Tallahassee, FL
Dessence Salon - 1824 Perry St., Tallahassee, FL 32310

2) Asheville, NC
Location TBD

3) Dallas, TX

and more cities, to be announced. 

Summer Tour plans extend from June 5th until August 1st.  

(This is just the Summer leg of the tour.  The tour itself has no end date, as I have committed to this project for the rest of my life.  It will not even stop when I die, as I will create an apprentice program when I reach age 65, to enlist young mural artists to continue on the World Peace Mural Tour.)

World Peace Murals bring a bit of interactive fun to the cities where they are created, establishing experiential public art activation points that provide tourists and locals alike with a poignant conversation starter and and a photographic opportunity to be a part of a popular viral phenomenon and an important social message... a message the world needs to hear right now.

I believe that what Renda is doing with the tour is a tangible part of making the world a more peaceful place, and we need tangible action and not just a world full of action-less opinions.
