Religare: Artists explore the concept of Religion

Religare: Artists explore the concept of Religion

"Religare": according to Tom Harpur and Joseph Campbell the word Religion derives from the Latin word "ligare" which means "bind, connect", and combined with the prefix "re"= re-ligare, i.e. re (again) + ligare or "to reconnect". For this art exhibit, artists will create work that analizes and critiques the concept of religion.
