See two new monumental sculptures as part of a world-wide installation calling attention to the need for peace, love, and inclusion for the 40th Anniversary of World Peace Day.

XO WORLD (outside One World Trade Center) features a giant globe and 12 foot “Jack” from the game of Jacks (the “X” with crossed arms attached to the spoke to represent love). In XO PLAY (inside the Oculus), life-size children engaged in the simple game of jacks, symbolizing childhood innocence and harmonious coexistence with the world.

Created by Daniel Anderson, an internationally recognized artist inspired by children’s natural acceptance of others regardless of race, gender, age, or religious preference.
