Cathedral of St. John the Divine:
Opening of The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls
Thursday, February 14
6:00 – 9:00 pm
1037 Amsterdam Avenue, at 112th Street
Beginning with the historic framework of the Cathedral as a site of welcome and refuge, this multidisciplinary exhibition explores the question of sanctuary through the work of modern and contemporary artists. Using the Cathedral’s sacred space as a canvas, these works illuminate the intersections between spiritual and social identity, and the ways in which personhood and community cohesion speak to and are formed by notions of dignity, inclusion and exclusion.
