New Hampshire – July 6, 2015
Marcos Antonio and the Flag for Hope team visited New Hampshire over the Fourth of July weekend on their New England Tour. New Hampshire welcomed the team with open arms and is one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Marcos is the artist for Flag for Hope and founder of the Anthony Quinn Life Achievement Award in Film and the Arts. In this role, Marcos has undertaken humanitarian missions and represented the interests of people across the globe.
Capturing impressions of humanity and watching the Flag for Hope take shape in front areas of interest has captured the attention of people all over the United States and in a broader sense the world. A trip to New England wouldn’t have been complete without a stop at New Hampshire’s waterfront. To see what American’s had to say about the visit, go to our social media channels #flagforhope.
What is Flag for Hope?
Flag for Hope is a social movement of people all across America coming together to recognize our shared humanity, and to unite in harmony.
It’s a message of peace and hope for our future as one people, and our connection to the rest of the global community.
It’s a way of viewing our place in this great country, and in the world, a view that celebrates our commonality, and puts aside the differences that separate us.
And it’s America’s chapter in Impressions of Humanity, an epic and monumental humanitarian art project the likes of which has never been created. Marcos Antonio, artist, is helping the world to create its own work of art by leaving hand impressions on a canvas. When complete, the canvas will constitute the largest single piece of art in the world, made up of 960 panels from every country on the globe. Each country will be represented by 5,000 individuals invited to make their impression.
The ultimate goals of “Impressions of Humanity” are:
- To make a world peace canvas where people worldwide will be holding hands without conflict.
- To celebrate everything we have in common: Our Humanity.
- To erase everything that separates humanity.
- To give a voice to people who do not have one.
- To immortalize one million people worldwide
When complete, Marcos will donate the global canvas to be placed in a museum as his gift to future generations. He is creating an electronic database of a photo and video clip of each participant leaving his or her impression on the canvas.
