The Sebastopol Living Peace Wall was originally conceived and designed and modeled by Michael Gillotti, a long time Sebastopol resident and business owner. He was a Conscientious Objector during the VietnamWar. Michael then partnered with Richard Retecki to navigate the city approval process and to refine the wall design and process. Richard is a Vietnam combat veteran.

The central purpose of the Living Peace Wall is to promote the cause of peace and justice by honoring those who have dedicated their lives to this cause. It is hoped that others will be inspired by their work and that we may all find ways to become more peaceful, loving individuals so that we can then create a more peaceful and loving world
