The Beauty of Sacred Garments, September 10 - October 26, 2007, Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 19th, 5pm to 8pm.
Curated by Leslie Meyer and Tova Rothman.
This exhibition presents religiously significant garments from four locally found faiths: Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Islam. While the garments on display can be appreciated for their aesthetic value, they are also something a believer wears and associates with his or her faith. Highlighting the meanings associated with each garment provides and opportunity for discussion and promotes deeper understanding and respect amongst people of all faiths.
