Museum Tour and Interfaith Reflection and Dialogue on the theme of Divine Light
Thursday from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST
After a Textile Museum curator-led tour of the special exhibit entitled "Prayer and Transcendence"*, join a dialogue surrounded by Anne Lindberg's inspiring "What color is divine light?" installation. The dialogue is hosted by the Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington (IFC-MW**) and will include the opportunity for participants to reflect and share with each other in small groups around the thought-provoking theme of divine light. IFC will provide guidance on engaging in dialogue with those from different backgrounds, worldviews and faith traditions.
* In the Muslim faith, carpets create physically and spiritually “clean” spaces during the daily ritual of prayer. Drawn from the collections of five institutions, this exhibition introduces the purpose and iconography of classical prayer rugs from across the Islamic World, as well as design comparisons from the Jewish tradition.
**IFC-MW is a DC-based non-profit focused on building community and increasing cooperation across diverse religious traditions and cultures in our nation’s capital by providing spaces, opportunities, and resources for interfaith engagement.
