WYOMING---It is certainly no secret that a good deal of religious misunderstanding takes place these days in both America and the state of Wyoming. Most of this misunderstanding comes from the lack of knowledge about each other’s history and traditions. To help overcome this divide, the Episcopal Foundation of the Diocese of Wyoming, in conjunction with an international art group called CARAVAN, is sponsoring a statewide art exhibit titled The Bridge. The Bridge features the contemporary art of 47 Christian, Muslim and Jewish artists from 15 different nations. [link]
