Inner Light: A Collaboration with ManneqART
on exhibit September 9 – November 18, 2017
Original wearable sculptures created by artists from around the country, responding to the theme of Inner Light, chosen because of Sandy Spring’s Quaker heritage. The concept of the Inner Light is twofold. First, the Inner Light discerns between good and evil. It reveals the presence of both in human beings, and through its guidance, offers the alternative of choice. Secondly, the Inner Light opens the unity of all human beings to our consciousness. Quakers believe that the potential for good, as well as evil, are latent in everyone. For detailed information on ManneqART and how to create an entry, please click here. This project was funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
