The fall colors of this day added to the ever changing beauty of the growing work of art. Here is an overall view of the work on the day of public showing. Visitors came from around the world to see the showing on this day.
In this closeup view of the center, you can see the organic balloon shaped that changed with the temperature of the air, and the direction of the wind. Notice the design in the middle. This was taken from the National Resource Center for Healing Racism, also located on the Starr Commonwealth Campus.
As the night progressed, the scene changed with campfires, and the flame from the hot air balloon illuminated the scene. The sense of peace, that the work of art was designed to share, was noticable, as the event came to a close. More showings of the World Peace Initiative will be taking place in other locations in other countries around the world.
