Dear Friends
Here we go again... this time Fragments in New York in support of Adopt-A-Minefield. If you are in New York please come and see the show and please stop to say hello, I would love to actually meet you in "real" space. I will be present as much as possible and will be speaking about military waste, explosive remnants of war as well as the art and the inspiration behind it every day at 4 and 6 pm. Hope to see you there

Bronze sculpture exhibition by Canadian artist Blake in support of Adopt-A-Minefield.

Fragments is a unique international campaign using art to raise awareness of our generations’ legacy of landmines and military waste.

In this collection of nineteen works, Blake created every sculpture to be fragmented and then named each after a different type of landmine. The result is a stunning collection of limited edition sculpture that goes beyond commentary to become part of the solution.

Blake has donated the entire Fragments collection to raise awareness for mine action. In the UK in 2007, the Fragments exhibitions generated funds that cleared mine fields in Vietnam and helped to map mine fields in Angola.

For more information about the art, the artist and the Fragments campaign please visit the Fragments website at

Adopt-A-Minefield engages individuals, community groups, and businesses in the United Nations effort to help save lives by raising funds for mine clearance and survivor assistance and by raising awareness of the landmine problem.
