A place of refuge or safety; an oasis, retreat, and safe haven; a consecrated place – a sanctuary can serve all of these functions. Seen as a place of safekeeping and as a space where transformation can take place, the idea of “sanctuary” has long provided artists with the inspiration to create. Curated by Shanti Norris and in collaboration with the Washington Sculptors Group comes Sanctuary, exploring the concept of how space can create refuge.
Featuring indoor and outdoor installations as well as small and large-scale sculptures, Sanctuary challenges our assumptions about art as it extends into our personal spaces and how it can serve as a sacred space.
