The Hilbert College English Program’s spring Visiting Artist Series featured John Noltner, an award-winning photographer, who presented 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 shared 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.
