The Paul Bartlett Ré Peace Prize

Intent of the Ré Peace Prize Artist Paul Ré is recognized internationally for promoting world peace and harmony through his masterful creations. The recipient of the award may be an artist but may also be an individual in any field who has pursued peace and harmony with creativity and dedication. Possible projects may be environmental, involve individual or social healing, integrative medicine, sustainable energy or green architectural design, art creation or preservation, human population control and family planning or any positive endeavor. Included is Conflict Resolution, but Conflict Prevention is to be particularly strongly emphasized. Peace Prize Vision Statement by Paul Ré © 2006 I believe that we can greatly improve our world by encouraging and preserving the good in life – wisdom, beauty, insight, humor that enlightens – and using these positive forces to heal discord. This requires the integration and synergy of many fields – from art and science to engineering and philosophy – plus communication and common sense. Great advances can be made technically, for example, through cleaner and more efficient energy and transportation, but these must be combined with improvements in both personal habits and public policy. We must reduce waste, take only those natural resources that we really need and limit our population to a level that our biosphere can support. Global Peace must begin as Inner Peace within each individual. We can invite peace into our lives through thoughtful, healthy living and by offering courtesy, respect and friendship to others. There is a symmetry between the human rights we expect to receive and those we have an obligation to give. When we thoroughly integrate peace into all of our thoughts and actions, our life becomes a work of art. This is a very practical, influential and equable artform that everyone can practice. Ultimately, Peace becomes a natural way of living. Award Description The Peace Prize is meant to further the work of the recipient, but may also be used to create direct executions of or new interpretations of peace and harmony from Paul Ré’s original designs and/or his writings; for example, an extension of his widely shown exhibit of Touchable Art for the Blind and Sighted. The Prize will consist of a check to help the recipient carry forward his or her work, a 20" x 26" framed commemorative artwork created by Paul Ré, and a specially inscribed, signed, and numbered copy of the artist’s acclaimed monograph, The Dance of the Pencil, plus an award reception. Ré's latest volume, Art, Peace, and Transcendence: Réograms that Elevate and Unite from UNM Press received the 2016 New Mexico - Arizona Book Award for Philosophy and the 2019 Distinguished Favorite Award in Fine Arts from the Independent Press Awards. A specially inscribed copy of Art, Peace, and Transcendence will also be included in the prize. The Paul Bartlett Ré Peace Prize is administered by the University of New Mexico Foundation. It has been endowed to operate in perpetuity and extends his decades of work promoting harmony in the world through art. Upon Paul’s passing, the endowment should approximately quadruple. In 2012, the eligibility for the Peace Prize was extended to also include all UNM alumni, a group that numbers about 160,000 persons in 129 countries. Paul's greatest reward, beyond the joy of creating the art itself, is when people are moved by his work toward peace and fulfillment.
