“Golden States of Grace: Prayers of the Disinherited” at the St. Norbert art gallery inside the Bush Art Center. This exhibit captures moments of worship and other spiritual moments of 11 different types of marginal religious communities in California (For example, Muslims formerly from Cambodia whose family and friends were victims of genocide in the 1970′s; an ashram mainly for people with HIV; a Buddhist program for prisoners, etc.). This exhibition runs until October 22nd but the gallery is only open on weekdays from 9:00-3:00, so it may be hard for some of you to get a chance to see the exhibit. But if you can make it, it will be well worth your time. The photographer, Rick Nahmias, also has a book based on the exhibit with the same title “Golden States of Grace”, which is probably available at the St. Norbert bookstore.
