HOUSTON (March 15, 2021) – Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston (Interfaith Ministries) is pleased to be the exclusive Texas host of the Abraham: Out of One, Many art exhibit. This unique display showcases visual representations of Abraham – a figure revered by the three faith traditions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The artwork will be on display in a virtual setting starting April 20 through May 21.
Interfaith Ministries will host of variety of community programming during this time to complement the exhibit. The exhibit opens with a launch hosted by Interfaith Ministries’ women’s initiative, IMpower, and features The Rev. Paul Gordon Chandler, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming and exhibit curator. The exhibit will close with Interfaith Ministries’ annual Gershenson Lecture, this year focused on world religions.
This timely exhibition, playing off the Latin motto “E pluribus unum” (Out of one, many) focuses on what can be learned from Abraham’s story about living together more harmoniously. Three celebrated Middle Eastern contemporary visual artists from the faith traditions of Islam, Christianity and Judaism have created five paintings that interpret Abraham’s life and journey for us today, serving as a guide toward creating cultures of peace, harmony, justice and healing – all as descendants of a shared heritage. What can Abraham teach us today toward freeing our world from strife? This is the question this strategic exhibition attempts to answer.
The exhibition was founded by CARAVAN, an international peacebuilding non-profit/NGO that builds bridges through the arts between the creeds and cultures of the Middle East and West.
