Works by 200 Artists at the 4th Interfaith Art Exhibition at ICCNC
ICCNC: The Fourth Interfaith Art Exhibition which opened on December 3rd at ICCNC and features works by 200 artists of different nationalities and faiths will continue until February 24th.
“Collaboration and Connection” is the fourth biennial interfaith art exhibition hosted by the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California (ICCNC) and brings together artists from many faiths to express their commitment to interfaith understanding, coexistence, peace, and cultural dialogue. The impetus for this powerful exhibition is the desire to build bridges and create friendships through artistic collaboration.
Thirty teams of artists have risen to the challenge of creating collaborative artwork with unique and stunning creations in a wide variety of mediums including painting, clay, fabric, metalwork, glass, found materials, photography, origami and much more.
As one of the artists commented “perhaps the road to peace is not a roadmap but a journey through an exhibition such as THIS”.
This art exhibition is sponsored by the Faith Trio, a 16 year alliance of the ICCNC with two other congregations in the Oakland area: Kehilla Community Synagogue and Montclair Presbyterian Church. Local non-profits, foundations, and community partners are also sponsors of the exhibition.
This art exhibition will hold its closing reception on February 24th from 2-4p.m. at the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California, 1433 Madison Street, Oakland.
