The (Recycled) Art of War

SMJA09_EN_02 Artist Lin Evola-Smidt, best known for her 13-foot sculpture Renaissance Peace Angel (pictured) at Ground Zero, lost her husband to suicide after his health failed because, she speculates, of exposure to organic poisons from the World Trade Center attack.

Evola-Smidt now devotes her work to world peace. Her projects involve melting down weapons and recycling their metals into public art. Her next work, the New York Peace Angel monument, will stand 30 feet tall and debut in 2012. Other cities with a history of strife, including Jerusalem and Sarajevo, are lining up for similar pieces. Her organization is called the Art of Peace Charitable Trust
