About

During a time of increasing stereotypes and media hype, and in the midst of the ever-widening divide that exists between the Middle East and West, and the ever-growing misconceptions and apprehensions, CARAVAN’s The Bridge, an East-West travelling art exhibition will soon premiere in the US at St. Paul’s Chapel near Ground Zero.

Opening on January 19 and running through February 28, The Bridge serves as a common starting point on which to build, towards seeing the development of a world that inherently respects and honours cultural and religious diversity, living and working together in harmony. Through the work of 47 visionary contemporary artists, The Bridge aims to provide a link not only within communities, but between communities.

The Bridge is being exhibited at venues throughout the world. It opened on February 2, 2015 with a monthlong exhibition in Paris to commemorate World Interfaith Harmony Week and was subsequently shown in Cairo, at St Martin-in-the-Fields on Trafalgar Square in London, and Metz Cathedral in Metz, France. Following its exhibition in New York City at St. Paul’s Chapel it will be displayed throughout the United States (i.e. Chicago’s Rockefeller Chapel, Spokane’s St. John’s Cathedral, Portland’s Trinity Episcopal Cathedral and throughout Wyoming).
