Art Exhibit: Comic Hero Quote by Chris C.

Friday, September 09, 2022
Peninsula Center Library
Foyer Exhibit Area
Art In Our Library is pleased to present "Comic Hero Quote" from August 5 - September 9 at the Peninsula Center Library.

"I've always loved comics and how they can inspire young and old.  The process of creating this art brings me back to childhood and helps me remember the excitement of seeing all my heroes on brightly colored comic strips. Fusing the comics with bold and motivating ideas just seemed natural, and so fun to design.  You are your own hero!"  -Chris C.

The proclamation was approved on December 9 2021, by the UN General Assembly.

The International Moon Day will be an annual event, held for the general public celebrated across the planet, in cooperation with UNOOSA. MVA believes that the International Moon Day is a good opportunity to educate the public and promote and raise each year, at the international level, the awareness on the status and prospects for humanity, the sustainable Moon Exploration and Utilization of the Moon and the need to act together to regulate activities on and around the Moon. With the approval by the United Nations, this event will foster increased global cooperation between stakeholders all around the world, as well as promoting increasing participation to this goal of the future generation.
