Peace pole dedicated

Art of Peace committee member Toni Ferrell and Tyler City Councilman Bob Westbrook open Saturday’s event celebrating the new peace pole at Golden Road Park.

A peace pole was dedicated at noon Saturday at Golden Road Park, 2300 McDonald Road, as part of the ninth Art of Peace festival in Tyler.

“The aim of Art of Peace is to promote a spirit of creativity, compassion and community through partnerships, fellowship, dialogue, social action, music, poetry and art,” the festival’s mission statement says. The theme this year has been Living Peace.

The weeklong festival wrapped up Saturday with a celebration at Ornelas Activity Center, 3402 Old Omen Road, which was to include a meal followed by music celebrating the late folk singer and social activist Pete Seeger.
