Healing Our Humanity: Finding Hope, Love and Unity

A Juried Exhibition at the Steffen Thomas Museum of Art

May 6 – July 10, 2021

The Steffen Thomas Museum has invited artists of all media and genres to its annual juried exhibition. This show aims to compile a broad range of perspectives that tell the dynamic story of our current social climate and the path forward. We will proudly feature a group of artists whose work inspires communication, healing, hope, love and unity.

This year’s exhibition is Healing our Humanity: Finding Hope, Love and Unity, exemplified by the following quote by our namesake, Steffen Thomas. 

“The most important aspect of art is communication. I use universal themes and I try to communicate with all persons.  Art is unique in that a translation is not necessary, and a genuine work of art can be more powerful than a dozen ambassadors.  If we can exchange our ideas and our feelings through art, I think it will be a little more difficult for us to go shooting and dropping bombs on each other.  Perhaps I am an idealist, but this is what I believe and this is the purpose of my work.”

– Steffen Thomas, November, 1965 from “The Turbulent World of Steffen Thomas” by Richard Ainsworth as published in ‘ATLANTA’, the Official Publication of the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.
