Master-Peace 2000 (Miami): Miami artist Xavier Cortada will be working with ten high schools during the 1999-2000 academic year to create ten murals commemorating the millennium's past ten centuries.  The Internet-based project utilizes the artist's WebStudio to create collaborative murals exploring lessons humanity has learned during the last 1000 years.


Xavier Cortada has worked with diverse community groups across four continents to create pro-social art projects.   Cortada, an attorney and community leader, combines his artistic talent with his concern for social and political issues. Among the topics he has explored through his work are community development, racism, violence, poverty, political freedom, AIDS, and Cuba.
