AboutDr. Fischer's Art for Peace Collection was initiated together with the signing of the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt in 1979 and with Jordan in 1996.
300 artists from Israel and around the world were given the task of creating a painting dedicated to peace and tolerance on a regular envelop used for mailing letters. The collection is transportable and is often presented to the public due to the generosity of the Dr. Fischer company. As a result of the exhibitions, representatives from Israel and from a number of Arab states including the Palestinian Authority have had the opportunity to meet. Creative workshops are held alongside the exhibition dedicated to mutual understanding and tolerance and aimed at creating a dialog between nations. The envelopes were joined by a collection of art dealing with the topics of war and peace by leading artists. To date, the collection has been exhibited in over 50 galleries and museums worldwide.
On October 10th, 2013, a new collection of Artists' Messengers of Peace will be displayed at Hundred Years Gallery.
British artists will be invited to draw, paint or write on Dr. Fischer's peace envelopes and their work, which will be donated to the collection, will be exhibited as well.
