Online PR News – 20-April-2022 – New York, New York – On April 22, 2022, the ANIMODULES the Good News Planet and the Animodules Agents of Peace will arrive in Times Square to celebrate Earth Day! ANIMODULES are a giant three dimensional “Animated Module” sculpture. It is an original art form created by the youth in various communities under the guidance of local professional artists and the Barat Foundation. The Barat Foundation hosts an interdisciplinary arts program that includes research, visual and language arts, and mathematics to educate students as they work together with local artists to create something larger than themselves, while building an enduring piece of art that represents their ideas and community. ANIMODULES promote the civic ideals of diversity, social justice and pride of place. The fun starts at 2:30pm!
For almost two decades the Barat Foundation has achieved many accomplishments. Their ANIMODULES have engaged over 10,000 children, welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors to Newark Airport, created the largest collaborative public artwork in the history of Newark- the Peace Mural painted by over 500 children in 14 schools to welcome the Dalai Lama, an annual Creation Nation Art & Peace Parade now in its 12th year; and a large growing international family of ANIMODULES sculptures and named “Newark’s Official Peace Ambassadors” by US Senator Cory Booker. Applauded by educators, artists, peace activists and thousands of students, Barat Foundation introduces a community voice into the public landscape that promotes diversity, social justice and the healing and peacemaking powers of the arts.
