In celebration of Gandhi's birthday and the International Day of Non-Violence, the Rubin Museum is asking people of all ages to create and submit their own peace flag. The completed flags will be strung together and hung throughout the museum during Family Day on October 2, 2010.
The International Day of Non-Violence marks Mohandas “Mahatma”
Gandhi’s birthday, and his philosophy of satyagraha, or non-violent resistance. The peace flags hung at the Rubin Museum
will reflect peoples’ personal interpretations, feelings, and thoughts about satyagraha and what peace means to them.
-1 foot x 1 foot
squares of fabric are available to pick up at the main entrance at the Rubin Museum of Art, or use your own piece of 1 foot x 1 foot fabric or paper.

and any medium you like to express your thoughts and feelings about satyagraha
