We Are One Art Exhibition

 Thank you for your request for more information about our upcoming art show, “We Are One: The Oneness of Humanity in its Brilliant Diversity”.  We are thrilled you are interested in the show!  

Description for the Art Show:

The central teaching of the Bahá'í Faith is the oneness of humanity and the elimination of prejudice in all forms. We are celebrating the oneness of humanity, showcasing unity in all its beauty and diversity.  The Bahá’í Community of Concord hosts this in celebration of the Bicentenary of the Birth of The Báb, who heralded Bahá'u'lláh, prophet founder of The Bahá’í Faith.  

 

The Bahá'í Writings emphasize this concept of diverse parts enhancing the whole:

 

"Consider the flowers of a garden. Though differing in kind, color, form, and shape, yet, inasmuch as they are refreshed by the waters of one spring, revived by the breath of one wind, invigorated by the rays of one sun, this diversity increaseth their charm, and addeth unto their beauty. How unpleasing to the eye if all the flowers and plants, the leaves and blossoms, the fruits, the branches and the trees of that garden were all of the same shape and color! Diversity of hues, form and shape, enricheth and adorneth the garden, and heighteneth the effect thereof."

- ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
