Laurie Wohl's "Birds of Longing: Exile and Memory" coming to Indianapolis

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
The fiber art works, known as Unweavings®, intertwine Muslim, Jewish and Christian poetry and spiritual texts from the period of the Convivencia in Spain and from contemporary Middle Eastern poets.
INDIANA---“Birds of Longing: Exile and Memory” interweaves Christian, Jewish, and Muslim poetry and spiritual texts from the period of the Convivencia in Spain and from contemporary Middle Eastern poets in the context of Laurie Wohl's fiber art work. New York-based Wohl emphasizes the striking parallels between Arabic and Hebrew texts, both rich in the poetry of spiritual love. During this time of increased hate crimes, Indiana Interchurch Center and the Arthur M. Glick JCC felt an urgent necessity to welcome at artist to Indiana to promote better understanding. The exhibit opens at Indiana Interchurch Center on January 6, 2017.
