Sculpture at Dulles Airport promotes peace and tolerance

The world could use a bit more peace and tolerance and that’s the theme of a sculpture by DC-based artist Anil Revri recently installed at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Concourse A/B.

Wall for Peace is 7 feet long, 6 ½ feet high and features a four-sided LED screen that displays English translations of scriptures related to peace from Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism.

The sculpture will be on view at Dulles International Airport through March 2013.
