About the Exhibit Theme:

In a society where the focus seems to be doing more, spending more, having more, at times we need to focus on calm and contentment. Perhaps you find peace in nature or in family. In music, or words. Be it an experience, place, or person, we ask you to share what brings you serenity, where or how you find your peace.
