The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama Foundation and the Committee of 100 for Tibet invited Rosemary to participate in The Missing Peace: Artists Consider The Dalai Lama, art exhibition to create an artwork that embodies the virtues and the ideals of the Dalai Lama. The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama is a multi-media art exhibition that brings together over 75 well-respected artists, representing more than 25 countries. With the full life of the Dalai Lama as inspiration, the intention for this project is to shift the world’s attention towards peace.

The Missing Peace opened in June 2006 at the UCLA Fowler museum, and was followed by exhibitions in Chicago, at Loyola University Museum of Art, The Rubin Museum of Art, New York, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, Tokyo-Japan, Madrid-Spain, and the Brukenthal Museum and Evangelical Church in Sibiu, Romania. The Missing Peace exhibition concluded it's five year global tour at the Nobel Museum in Stockholm and the San Antonia Museum of Art in 2011.
