Fred George’s SOLAR PEACE SCULPTURE arrived in Copenhagen today. His 8.75-foot (2.6 meter) model is available for viewing at the green art hotel, Hotel FOX, located at Jarmers Plads 3, December 10-20, 2009. This is a traveling model of the original 50-foot (15.24 meter) version of his Solar Peace Sculpture, which includes oil barrels, solar panels, and an interactive media center.

“Copenhagen is the perfect place for us to share the message of the Solar Peace Sculpture. Both art and peace have an incredible ability to transcend language. What a great opportunity to have a global conversation about preserving the environment and promoting alternative energy. We want people left with the vision of peace: peace with nature, peace within, peace worldwide.” -Fred George, Artist, Solar Peace Sculpture.
