Sacred Geography: Many Cultures, One Earth
Opens March 1.
For a year, the Mariposa will explore the world through the faiths of the world's cultures. Through special exhibitions, films, lectures, and performances we will we will listen to the voices of ancient wisdom, explore the mythology of sacred sites, follow stunning pilgrimage routes, and investigate the roots of faith and conflict, reminding us that while we have diverse beliefs, we are also a single human family sharing a beautiful but fragile planet.
Featured Exhibit: A World in Paper: Paper Relief Illustrations by Children's Book Author Giles Laroche.
Photography and folk art tell the story of a region whose landscape is sacred to people of differing faiths, common origins, and entwined histories.
When children are raised with respect and curiosity towards
other cultures, the world will know more peace and less war.
