Opening of The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls
6 PM - 8 PM
Join us for the opening of The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls, the next in a series of Cathedral-wide initiatives focused on the intersections between spirituality, contemporary social issues, and human rights and dignity.
Past exhibitions in the series—beginning with The Value of Water, through The Value of Food and The Christa Project—have tackled big-picture issues connected to the symbolism and significance of the basic building blocks of human culture: access to clean water, adequate nutrition, and the right to bodily self-determination.
With The Value of Sanctuary, the Catheral’s sacred space will be host to numerous perspectives on another essential element of human life: the right to shelter, and beyond that, an exploration of what shelter and sanctuary mean in a world divided by sectarian discord, cultural migration, and ongoing refugee crises.
This event is presented in conjunction with The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls and the Harlem Renaissance 100 community celebration.
