A celebration of the mural commissioned by UMass as part of peacebuilding efforts to highlight the power of art in conflict transformation. 

The mural was painted in 2010 by members of the UMass community and two of the leading muralists during the North/Northern Ireland conflict and transition to peace: Danny Devenny, an ex-Irish Republican Army political prisoner and Mark Ervine, British loyalist, whose father served in the paramilitary Ulster Volunteer Force and was a negotiator on their behalf for the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement.
