WASHINGTON, DC---The international interfaith arts exhibit "AMEN: A Prayer for the World" premieres in the US on September 4 at the Washington National Cathedral. The exhibition and program are organized by CARAVAN, based in the UK, and features sculpted figures by Egyptian artist Reda Abdel Rahman, in four poses of prayer that symbolize human diversity, community, and the many forms prayer can take. Other participating artists decorated the life-sized fiberglass sculptures. Twenty-five donkeys, painted by Egyptian and UK artists were previously on display in London. These figures join 18 figures painted by Western artists for a joint exhibition at Washington National Cathedral; all 48 figures then continue to St. John the Divine in New York City.
