Richard J. Rapaport's career began teaching art in a loft in Manhattan, and was the first to teach training workshops for the division of handicapped students. The Secretary General of the UN has an art piece of Richard's titled "Fly in Peace," on display in his office. His work has also been displayed in the Turkish Society Governors Mansion. Richard designs and creates silk scarfs and ties for prominent professionals. While attending Club 21, Richard met a Yale Air Force Major who later hung his artwork in the Yale ROTC office. Richard recently held an exhibition in Ghana where students made art pieces representing their perception of what peace looks like. Richard's overall dream is to have the UN International School have young adults make artwork of their perception of peace then send it to NASA international space station to project an exhibition of international peace from universal youth.
