About

The Whole 9 Gallery shows beautiful things created with love from members of TheWhole9.com, an international online creative community, as well as other artists throughout the United States.   We hold 6-8 exhibits a year including our annual Peace Project exhibit which features visions of peace from artists worldwide.  Sales in the gallery help fund the life-changing work of The Peace Project, a non-profit we founded in July of 2010 to create big change powered by creatives.

 Since The Peace Project's inception, we've changed thousands of lives through programs including:

  • Educating dozens of children in Sierra Leone, Africa.
  • Distributed 10,000 pairs of crutches to amputees, war victims, polio survivors and mothers and children in Sierra Leone on World Peace Day, 2011.
  • Designing a Peace Museum for Sierra Leone in conjunction with the UN.
  • Creating and producing Peace Tips, specially designed crutch tips that extend the life of crutches by one year.
  • Designing an “instant house” and then rebuilding a community, plus our first Peace Center in the Philippines for victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

 

We’ve currently begun work to build a Peace Center in Sierra Leone, Africa, which will transform a site of violence into a site of healing and opportunity, helping to lift up an entire community.

We look forward to meeting you in the gallery or online.  Thank you for helping us to prove:

 

Art Changes People.  People Change the World.
