Cold Spring Harbor, NY (PRWEB) April 3, 2006 -–
Acclaimed artist and sculptor Lin Evola founded the Peace Angels project as a means of bringing recognition to the futility of war and the tools of war. Today, this important project received a major endorsement with commitments of funding and additional resources by Infusion Capital Management, LLC founder Todd Spehler.
Peace Angels are sculptures, created by Evola, which will be strategically placed in thirteen sites of conflict throughout the world. Some of the planned sites are Los Angeles, Jerusalem, Johannesburg and New York. Each of the representative pieces will be approximately twenty feet high, standing atop a ten-foot base to create a thirty-foot monument. They will be cast in a mixture of stainless steel and titanium from decommissioned nuclear missile casings and lower grade metal from surrendered street weapons.
This project is a both socially and historically important,” stated Todd Spehler, Founder of Infusion Capital Management, LLC. “We hope to work closely with Government and community programs that will act as catalysts to retrieve weapons used in the creation of Peace Angel sculptures. Our plan is for both Infusion Capital Management and me personally to take an active role in bringing Lin Evola´s Peace Angels Project to the World," Spehler continued.
