Many faces of faith

In August, Kirsten Conover reported in The Christian Science Monitor on an exhibition "Art & Religion: The Many Faces of Faith," which was held at the Balch Institute for Ethnic Studies in Philadelphia and at Villanova University Art Gallery in Villanova, Pennsylvania. Its purpose was to help combat intolerance among races and religions, and to build a sense of community.

"The works are religious," commented Homer Jackson, an interdisciplinary artist and a juror for the exhibition, "but they have a ring that is more akin to the part after church when you shake hands. These artists are telling stories, and you can see pieces of yourself in their work regardless of your religious beliefs."
