The Fourth Universalist Society in the City of New York is pleased to present its second art installation with works by world renowned artists; Faith Ringgold and Kiki Smith. Installed above the altar and in the chapel, the artworks seek to align the values of the congregation with the sacred space. The Fourth Universalist Society is located at 160 Central Park West, at 76th Street.
Both artists are social activists at their core. They also inspire us with compelling expressions of the human spirit. The art on view invites us to explore questions of hope and regeneration. Through the use of magical and uplifting imagery, spirituality is reimagined in the hands of these artists. The aspirations of these women, both feminists, are in keeping with Unitarian Universalist principles and our belief in social action. The installations highlight our deep desire to make a home in a world that struggles with marginality, prejudice, and environmental collapse.
