Eco-Conscience and Holiness, Journeys of a Pilgrim Artist through Holy Lands is a large-scale immersive exhibition seeking to foster awareness of our role as stewards of the ecosystems in which we live, and our call to the vivid grace which is present in diverse holy sites. This work spans four continents and many spiritual traditions from the Amazon to the Sea of Galilee.
