BROOKLYN - Hundreds of students from public schools throughout New York City showed off their masterpiece at the DUMBO Arts Festival.

"The Ship of Tolerance" was created by Russian artists Ilya and Emelia Kabakov to promote tolerance and peace in the world through children. The sails on the ship are the drawings of more than 700 students in the city including art by children from countries like Cuba and Egypt.

The Kabakovs say children can be the unfiltered voice of what's taking place in society.

The ship will be docked at Brooklyn Bridge Park until Oct. 6.
