Time: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Robert Radin features poignant photographs showcasing cultures around the world, cast in faith. Photographer Shireen Alborno tears down the stereotype attached to her religion & lifestyle as a Muslim. G. Carol Bomer juxtaposes text & image to create connections that are not predictable. Spirituality is an important part of the creative journey of Robert Crum. Professed to the Order of Secular Franciscans, spirituality is evident in Betti Pettinati-Longinotti’s inspired work.
