The Sadat Arts for Justice and Peace Program is a partnership between the Anwar Sadat Chair for Justice and Peace and Arts for All that brings together the Colleges of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Arts and Humanities to engage students at the University of Maryland.  

The Anwar Sadat Chair for Peace and Development, housed in the Department of Government and Politics, and Arts for All, in cooperation with the Department of Art, the Department of English, and the School of Music, hosted the inaugural year of three competitions: The Sadat Music for Justice and Peace, The Sadat Poetry for Justice and Peace, and The Sadat Art for Justice and Peace. 

A first-prize 2-Dimensional piece by Grant McFarland. Two pieces of wood, one charred, represent the civilian death toll from 9/11, and the much larger civilian death toll in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Five charcoal streaks above the wood represent the number of months when civilian casualties in Iraq exceeded the number of those killed in the 9/11 attacks.
