Bulding the Solar Peace Sculpture
2007 to present, Fred George conceived the “Solar Peace Sculpture”, a 15 meter Peace Sign constructed from 80 oil barrels with 80 solar energy panels attached to each barrel. These panels generate electricity daily, which reverts back to the electric energy grid. The proceeds from that energy are then donated towards charities.
The base of the sculpture contains a multi-media-portal recognizing the contributors and sponsors to the project. It will also have media portals which link environmental awareness globally and organizations which are dedicated to improving our planet. The SPS is designed to be disassembled and transported to tour countries around the world.
Fred Georges international engineering team consits of experts from the HTW Saarbrücken (Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft), headed by Prof. Dr. Ing. Günter Schmidt-Gönner, Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Eugen Schneider and Dipl. Ing. (FH) Bernd Eichenseer and NYC architects Perkins Eastman.
Mr. George’s team of artist assistants, studio managers and marketing team are promoting the sculpture worldwide.
