The Ship of Tolerance Chamber Concert for Chicago(click on image to enlarge)


The Ship of Tolerance is a conceptual piece that reflects how divergent cultures interpret tolerance. The ship’s sails are stitched together from paintings by hundreds of local schoolchildren from different ethnic and social backgrounds to convey a message of tolerance and hope. Previous interpretations of this project have taken place in: Siwa, Venice, San Moritz, Sharjah, Havana, Moscow, New York City, Zug, Rostock, Capalbio, Rome, and London. The next ship sets sail for Chicago.
