Project Description

Peace Walk Duluth | Destination 2 | Sister Cities Sculpture Garden

Cross the boardwalk and take a half-right up the ramp. When you arrive at the top, look to the right to the Sculpture Garden with sister city monuments. For more than thirty years Duluth has had a vital sister city program.

Note especially that with Ohara Isumi-shi, Japan and Petrozavodsk, Russia we are linked with a people who were once considered the enemy. Each pairing has a dramatic peacemaking story. There is no monument yet, but our fifth sister city is Rania in Iraqi Kurdistan, an area of current global tensions and war.
