Build a culture of peace in Morgan Hill and contribute to the future Morgan Hill Peace Monument (Peace Pole). This monument will be a symbol of tolerance, friendship, and non-violence. The monument, a 10' basalt column, etched with the word 'peace' in multiple languages will grace a grassy knoll near the City offices. The monument will be designed by internationally known Los Gatos artist and sculptor David Middlebrook.
This is a unique art installation symbolizing inclusion, friendship, and unity- linking Morgan Hill with people of all faiths and nationalities worldwide. The Morgan Hill peace monument will dignify our town as a place of welcome; embrace all nationalities and ideologies; be a continuous reminder against violence; and create a culture of friendship and hope for a better world.
100% of your donations will be used for materials, etchings, design, transport and installation of the monument.
Peace Poles are internationally recognized symbols of hope, started in Japan by the World Peace Prayer Society in 1955. There are now estimated to be as many as 250,000 peace monuments in nearly every country in the world and soon to be in Morgan Hill!
