Trinity Church Wall Street presents the U.S. premiere of The Bridge, an East-West travelling art exhibition organized and curated by CARAVAN, an interreligious and intercultural peacebuilding NGO at St. Paul’s Chapel (Broadway and Fulton Street). The showcase, which runs from January 20 – February 28, 2016, includes the work of 47 contemporary visual artists from 15 countries focusing on what they hold in common through their Christian, Muslim, and Jewish cultures and creeds.
The Bridge serves as a common starting point on which to begin seeing a world that intrinsically respects and honors cultural and religious diversity. It opened on February 2, 2015 with a month-long exhibition in Paris to commemorate World Interfaith Harmony Week and was subsequently shown in Cairo, at St. Martin-in-the-Fields on Trafalgar Square in London, and at the Metz Cathedral in Metz, France. After New York City, it moves to Chicago’s Rockefeller Chapel, Spokane’s St. John’s Cathedral, Portland’s Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, and around Wyoming.
