Sacred Words: Finding Common Ground

An Interfaith Art Exhibit

This exhibit showcases over 20 artists from multiple faith traditions, each piece features sacred words—in languages as diverse as English, Hebrew, Greek, Arabic, Farsi, and Chinese—as a means to transcend our differences and inspire interfaith dialogue and understanding.

Originally shown in a 2013 exhibit coordinated by a Oakland interfaith coalition, The Faith Trio, this exhibit was curated by Islamic, Catholic and Jewish representatives from our "Salaam, Shalom" series committee.

Exhibit on view through April 7



This event is part of a free program series designed to increase dialogue and understanding between local faith communities, supported by multiple religious organizations across Marin.
