Support the Arts

Message from our Director

Support the arts! Become a member of CARe

Through May 24, come visit RELIGION AND RESISTANCE, an exhibition that speaks to the role of religious-based protest in striving toward social justice. With powerful photographs by noted documentary photographer Ken Light, archival posters from the collection of expert Lincoln Cushing, and a giant puppet of Archbishop Oscar Romero from Bread & Puppet, this exhibition will encourage us to think about how religion and resistance have been intertwined. Protest signs from recent demonstrations will show how messages with religious content continue to resonate today.
