Elizabeth Myers Castonguay
“A celebration of the similarities and diversity of humanity by all peoples will be the key to unlock the door to peace in a world plagued by prejudice, hatred, and war. My work has sought to break down barriers between diverse groups of people. It has evolved to speak not only about the fragile interrelationships between humanity but between humanity and our ENDANGERED world.”
