Tim is the first American artist ever invited to give a solo exhibit at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia, the world’s largest art museum, where his sculptures remain on permanent display. His work has gained notice also among some of the world’s peacemakers. Nobel prize winners Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Jimmy Carter are among Holmes’ best-known collectors.

Holmes was commissioned to create the U.N. Women’s Peace Prize and has created sculpture for other international projects, including the South African bid for the Olympics. Holmes believes art will heal the world in these troubling times.
