What's Happening at the cHURCH OF MONIKA?

The cHURCH OF MONIKA opened back in January at the OPEN SOURCE gallery.

The cHURCH OF MONIKA's mission is to use art as a surrogate for religion. (More at our earlier post here.) Open Source sent us a blurb about the upcoming sermon:

The sermon this Sunday (May 30, 11 a.m.) is by Miho Suzuki and is called "Our Children Today." The short essay "A Look at Children in The U.S.A."* has inspired Suzuki’s ongoing photographic exploration of the glorious diversity of children in New York City.

The artist will be sharing some of her images and ideas, and hopefully inspiring young and old to join her in a discussion of what it means to be a child. Please feel free to bring toys or favorite objects from your childhood.

*“If we were able to in a quick flight over the United States in 1950 to look carefully at our nation’s children- what would we see?” How would the picture be different from what it was fifty or even ten years ago? What can we expect in the future? These are questions that can, at least in part, be answered.”
–Leona Baumgartner, M.D.
