Art That Speaks

A Children's Art Exhibit

Unitarian-Universalist Youth brought their art creations to be exhibited on the Sanctuary walls for May through June 29. The challenge for all ages was to think about what their art means, and what it says. A further task for conceptualizing art imagery was to try to see if the art illustrated one or more of the seven principles that are the foundation of Unitarian-Unitarian practice and standards for living.

These Principles are stated in an abbreviated form as follows:

*Belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

*Justice equity and compassion in human relations.

*Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations.

*A free and responsible search for truth and meaning.

*The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.

*The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.

*Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Chalice Arts was formed to encourage spiritual growth through creative expression. We hope to present a variety of art forms, visual arts, literary arts, music, dramatic and performance arts and more, which are open to the public, to encourage a dialogue between artists of various art forms and the public, with a goal of enrichment for all. The group is open to non-church members.
