Following the major renovation of the United Nations Secretariat and a restoration of Norman Rockwell's Golden Rule" Mosaic, a rededication ceremony will be sponsored by the Permanent Mission of the United States to the U.N. Tuesday, February 4, 2014. This special occasion will celebrate the Mosaic, which became the world symbol of diversity, inclusion and understanding; a true depiction of humanity together. It will be followed by a reception at the Church Center.
With the primary funding from The Thanks-Giving Foundation (TGF) and the City of Dallas, as well as contributions from businesses and individuals from a dozen states, the Mosaic was accomplished by a group in Venice, Italy and given to the U.S. government. It was originally dedicated and presented to the United Nations in 1985 by First Lady Nancy Reagan, where it was to hang in their Headquarters. It was the Thanks-Giving Foundation of Dallas who arranged and financed the creation of this mosaic. As TGF labeled it, it was "the gift of the People of the United States to the People of the World."
