In 1987, Dr. Libby Hostetler, professor emeritus of education, planted the idea of a more peaceful future at Bluffton and in the world. During a sabbatical year, Hostetler developed The Lion and Lamb Peace Arts Center which uses the arts and literature to promote the study of peace and justice, cultural understanding and nonviolent responses to conflict with an emphasis on these themes for children. To celebrate 30 years, an open house was held on Thursday, April 20.
