Iowa Peacemakers Monuments Mission:
Our mission is to create a place to celebrate the lives of
countless Iowans in the past who devoted their lives to
working for a peaceful world, a place for Iowans in the
present to witness their passion for peace
and a place for Iowans in the future
to be inspired and challenged
to pursue peace with tireless strength.
Our first monument, the Path of Peace sculpture,
an original work of art by Ron Dinsdale and crafted
from Indiana Bedford limestone, is a joint project
of Des Moines Area Community College
and Iowa Peacemakers Monument, Inc.
and was dedicated in September 2012.
Our recent focus is on sayings of peace that will grace
stone walls at Cowles Commons in downtown Des Moines.
