Sanctuary for Spirituality
June 6, 2017 - June 26, 2017
The Miri Piri Academy Alumni Association is putting on an art exhibition this summer from June 6th – 26th around the theme of “Sanctuary for Spirituality”. Our goal is to feature the art of MPA Alumni as well and other artists that center around expressing spirituality, regardless of its form, through art. Our hope is to bring as much of our extended community together around this event to celebrate all of the ways that we practice and express our spirituality.
Sanctuary for Spirituality Art Exhibition: June 6th – 26th @ Fresh Gallery in Santa Fe, NM
Our society is made up of many different cultures, origins, and faiths. Given the present climate of division, how can we celebrate our differences instead of building walls up against them? How can we focus on inclusivity instead of separation?
For eons mankind has grappled with the questions of existence, destiny, and questioned the concept of Who Am I? Where Did I Come From? What Am I Here to Do? And Where Am I going? The struggle to find the answer to these questions often open up more questions about the search for truth, spirit, and religion. With over 4,200 different religions in the world, there are many ways man has sought to find peace in answering these questions.
In this exhibition, the focus is on being the sanctuary for spirituality in art. We look at the answers in man’s search for meaning. Featuring artists from Muslim, Christian, Judaism, Sikhism, Pagan, and non-religious perspectives, we set standards of inclusivity to honor the diversity and the freedom to believe in one’s relationship to their spirit.
