“Unraveled: A Visual Response to RavelUnravel” is a traveling art exhibit based on the themes explored in Project Interfaith’s RavelUnravel.com. RavelUnravel is an interactive, multimedia website featuring more than 1,100 short video interviews of people discussing their religious or spiritual identity, stereotypes that they have encountered, and how welcoming they have found their communities to be. Project Interfaith invited artists to submit art pieces that were inspired by RavelUnravel.com. Fifty-two artists submitted their work, and pieces were chosen for the exhibit by a three member jury. The pieces differ in size and medium, however the art is connected in that each piece is a visual response to RavelUnravel’s multiple themes. These include: spirituality and all the ways it can be defined, practiced, questioned, ignored, and embraced; the ways that the threads of someone’s spirituality have woven through their upbringing, their lives, and their communities; and statements on prejudice, faith, misperceptions, community, isolation, celebration, ritual, tradition, connection, deities, grace, humanity, and identity.
UNRAVELED will be on display at Temple Israel beginning Monday, December 8 and lasting until January 7, 2015
