Join artist Aimee Golant June 3-4 at Spark Arts. View the most recent phase of the groundbreaking undertaking, Art for Prayer and Peace: A Bridge to Oneness, and learn from Aimee what the future will bring as the full extent of her project continues to unfold.

This beautiful art creates spiritual connection, hope, and healing by uniting people though religious and ritual art. It is inspired by the universality of diverse religious concepts expressed mostly by sounds that the artist has experienced through travel and study. This collection of spiritual objects in a unified space allows the artist to impart that deep sense of divinity revealed. This interactive and evocative exhibit, according to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, "has potential for contributing to religious harmony and peace."
