Standing Hand in Hand
May 19 – September 9, 2019
The theme for this summer’s exhibition of art by Westminster members and friends is: Standing Hand In Hand and is inspired by the text of the song I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing made famous by the New Seekers.
The artists visualize for us the experience of coming together in community, of being in family, and of standing united for a common cause against repression.
Where do you find yourself standing hand in hand with other people?
