HAMBURG, N.Y. – The Hilbert College English Program’s spring Visiting Artist Series will feature John Noltner, an award-winning photographer, who will present his multimedia arts project “A Peace of My Mind” on Tuesday, April 25 at 7 p.m. in the William E. Swan Auditorium on the Hilbert campus.
His project is built around the simple question, “What does peace mean to you?” Founded in 2009 by Noltner, the project began as his effort to rediscover humanity in an increasingly polarized world.
Noltner will be sharing some of the engaging portraits and compelling personal stories about what peace means to people, how they work towards it, and some of the obstacles they encounter.
In addition, on Monday, April 24, Noltner will be photographing Hilbert students and recording their responses to the questions: When have you seen community manifested at Hilbert? How have you created community here? These images and personal stories will also be included in the Tuesday evening presentation.

Admission to the event is free, but advance reservations are requested. Please call (716) 926-8877 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“In a world that asks us to focus on the things that can separate us, A Peace of My Mind invites us to explore the common humanity that connects us.” – John Noltner
