Sanctuaries

Dates: 
Saturday, January 18, 2020 to Sunday, March 22, 2020
Location: 

Kansas City artist Amy Kligman draws from her personal experiences in exploring the environments, elements, and symbolism that generate nontraditional spaces for reverence.

Kligman, executive/artistic director of the Charlotte Street Foundation, reflects on the cues that comfort, refresh, and generate a deeper sense of connection to the outside world. Some are commonplace: contemplations on nature and the community of a shared meal. Others, while familiar, are perhaps less recognized as spiritual: deep engagement in the writings of others and the simple act of sinking blissfully into blankets and pillows.

The nine-week exhibit in the Central Library’s Guldner Gallery runs concurrently with kaleidoscope by Kligman’s husband Misha Kligman.
