Bluffton University’s Lion and Lamb Peace Arts Center will host an open house to celebrate 30 years of promoting peace from 3-6 p.m. Thursday, April 20.
A brief program of music and reflection will be held at 4 p.m. in the Honda Outdoor Sculpture Garden.
The event is free and open to the public.
The Lion and Lamb Peace Arts Center promotes the study of peace and justice, cultural understanding and nonviolent responses to conflict with an emphasis on these themes for children.
For 30 years, the center has promoted peace through literature and the fine arts. Founded in 1987 by Dr. Libby Hostetler, emeriti professor of education, the center originally began as a shelf of children’s books in the former board room of Bluffton’s Musselman Library. The center, featuring more than 3,000 picture books, works of art and curriculum guides for teachers, can now be found in Riley Court.
