One of Dr. King's most compelling visions is that of a Beloved Community - a community in which people of different backgrounds recognize that we are all interconnected and that our individual well-being is inextricably linked to the well-being of others.
Here in Greater Cincinnati, we believe in this vision. And we believe that our faith community, all religions working together, will help us move towards becoming a community united, not divided.
This year, at The Cincinnati Festival of Faiths we will create a visible display of our commitment to this vision with a Beloved Community Interfaith Mural.
The mural, to be designed by local artist Lizzy duQuette, will depict the concept of a beloved community over an 8-ft. by 12-ft., six-paneled medium. The piece will be designed as a color-by-numbers painting that attendees of The Festival of Faiths representing more than 30 faith traditions and 13 world religions will help complete during the festival.
The completed mural will be a traveling exhibit to be displayed throughout Greater Cincinnati.
We need your support to bring this aspirational and inspirational work of community art to life. To move forward with this project we need to raise $5,000 to cover the costs of production and community promotion of the piece.
Please consider making a gift that is meaningful to you and join us as we strengthen our bonds and create a piece of artwork together which will serve as a visual reminder all year long of our commitment towards building a compassionate and loving Cincinnati community.
