Amen: A Prayer for the World
On view October 16 – November 18, 2014
This interfaith arts exhibit, brought to the Cathedral by CARAVAN, is designed to build bridges of respect, understanding, and sharing between the creeds and cultures of the East and West.
The exhibition features 48 fiberglass sculptures in prayer painted by Muslim, Christian and Jewish artists from Egypt and the West, seeking to express the deep, fundamental acknowledgement of power and hope for all peoples. To evoke the commonality of prayer, the sculptures' four poses, painted or decorated in a variety of designs, symbolize human diversity, community, and the many forms prayer can take. The fiberglass forms were sculpted by the noted Egyptian artist Reda Abdel Rahman.
