"Beyond Bridges" is an interfaith visual art exhibition showcasing 21 works by Arab, Persian and Jewish contemporary artists from countries of Muslim, Christian and Jewish backgrounds. Its theme is what "bridges" people to one another, as well as what the three faiths of the artists hold in common across their different creeds and cultures.
The exhibition will be on display in Duke Chapel's main sanctuary (the nave) from February 5 through February 26, 2017. The exhibition is free and open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily.
An opening panel and reception for the exhibition will be held at the Chapel on Sunday, February 5, at 2:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
"Beyond Bridges" is curated by CARAVAN, a peace-building arts nonprofit that originated in Cairo, Egypt. The collection builds on the success of the group's 2015-16 exhibition The Bridge, which was displayed in cathedrals, museums, galleries, and interfaith centers in Cairo, Chicago, London, New York, Paris, Portland, and other cities.
