To mark International Day of Peace, we invite you to look closely at the colorful sail in today's homepage photo. It's a composite of 120 small panels painted by children from different ethnic and social backgrounds—each panel offers a message of hope for a better world. The Ship of Tolerance is part of an international outreach program created by the Kabakov Foundation that aims 'to promote art as a medium for communication and cooperation between diverse cultures while nurturing the growth and development of young artists in all disciplines.' Children are taught the importance of understanding others and making friends with those outside their own cultural experiences. You're looking at an installation that was moored in Lake Zug, Switzerland.
