An opening reception will be held from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

Seeking to build interreligious bridges, the 2014 CARAVAN exhibition, which finished its Middle East run in Cairo in June at Egypt’s Museum of Modern Art, is built around the theme AMEN—A Prayer for the World, and is an aspirational expression of hope and goodwill.

The exhibition is co-curated by CARAVAN Founder/President, Rev. Paul-Gordon Chandler and celebrated Egyptian artist Reda Abdel Rahman. It is sponsored by SODIC, a real estate company in Egypt, and supported by the British Council.

The sculptures will be on display through November 23, 2014.
