The Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) at Coe Lake Park in Berea, Ohio has been recently appraised for marketing and insurance purposes at $2,400,000.  This means that the 4 square foot of real estate that the Sculpture sits on is $600,000 per square foot! 

The Worlds Children Peace Monument is an original sculpture conceived during EXPO 2000, the Worlds Fair held in Hannover, Germany by American Cultural Ambassadors David and Renate Jakupca. It was designed and built by David Jakupca at the historic ARK in Berea as a project of the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) in cooperation with the United Nations 2000 Culture of Peace Program. The WCPM was organized in support of the UN Decade of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World and the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

The WCPM was officially inaugurated in 2003 at the 3rd World Peace Conference held in Verbania, Italy where it received an Italian Medal of Arts Award. It was debuted at its present location during the 2003 Berea Arts Fest. The WCPM Project is to encourage positive community participation through the establishment of international site-specific works of public art, through cultural education and entrepreneurial training to children around the World.   

The WCPM Appraisal is another step forward to naturalizing ‘Great American Peace Trail’, the coast-to-coast trail of WCPM Peace Stones in city parks designed to stop the violence in America’s youth.  The WCPM Appraisal also serves as a milestone for the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts' and that is, promoting a sustainable global Culture of Peace for all Living Things.  North East Ohio Area has been 'branded' as the Home of the Environmental Art Movement by the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) as a 'Cultural Industry' to foster civic identity, cultivate tourism, and brand Ohio Environmental Arts and Culture in the Bioregion.

ABOUT: David Jakupca, is a Czech-American Philosopher, Ambassador, Artist, Activists and Author. He serves both as American Cultural Ambassador and Universal Peace Ambassador in International capacities. He is extremely influential through his works, especially as philosophical advocate and practitioner of the environmental arts methods developing the Sustainable Age revolution.  Jakupca  is the 'Spiritual Father of the Environmental Art’ Movement and is the co-creator with his wife Renate of the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts'. His works established and popularized inductive formula's for scientific inquiry, sometimes called the Iceality Method.  His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for the science of aesthetics, much of which surrounds conceptions of proper Environmental Art Methodology today.
