Presented by Bovet 1822 and Vhernier, FIERCE CREATIVITY is a selling exhibition featuring work from over 45 leading contemporary artists who are committed to extraordinary impact. Curated by Artists for Peace and Justice Advisory Board members, Chuck Close and Jessica Craig-Martin, each piece of artwork in the collection is poised to change lives. 100% of proceeds from the exhibition benefit Artists for Peace and Justice.

Please join us October 22-25, 2014 for the FIERCE CREATIVITY exhibition at New York City’s iconic Pace Gallery.

Driven by concern that a primary school education alone does not provide the training and skills necessary to climb out of endemic poverty, Artists for Peace and Justice has made major strategic investments in secondary and higher education in Haiti over the past five years. We believe in the power of education to change a nation – and we need your help to keep doing it. We support programs in education, healthcare, and dignity through the arts to create modern opportunities for some of the most talented and deserving youth in the nation.

Artists for Peace and Justice are so grateful to the vision and leadership of our advisory board members Jessica and Chuck for curating FIERCE CREATIVITY and inspired by their commitment to education as universal a human right. As all 46 participating artists have generously donated a major work to supports our schools, we are sure FIERCE CREATIVITY will create a ripple effect extends far beyond the exhibition itself.

Proceeds will be used for bricks and mortar, scholarships, teacher salaries and programmatic operational costs on the ground. The works in this collection are bound together by our shared belief that as artists, we must act fiercely in order to create change.
