About Master-Peace 2000

Over 500 students participated in Master-Peace 2000, an art project focusing on what we’ve learned in the last 1000 years. They explored everything from The Crusades to Slavery, from Genghis Khan to Shakespeare, and from the printing press to the Exxon Valdez. Their drawings and essays were the building blocks for ten murals created using Internet technology in the studio of artist Xavier Cortada. Students communicated with him via live chat rooms and webcams. The completed murals will be permanently installed in each school.

Visit the interactive website at www.master-peace.org/mp2k (site no longer available) to see their work and to post your message on any of ten discussion forums focusing on each of the past ten centuries.
