The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls investigates the current political debates in the United States on national borders, the immigration crisis, and the importance of finding refuge through the work of modern and contemporary artists. Using the sacred space of The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Morningside Heights as a canvas, this exhibition is a combination of sculpture, photography, and paintings by over 30 renowned artists.
The exhibition is currently open to the public until June 30, 2019.
