"For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face-to-face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." -- I Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)

Much like a memorial space, the artists' works in this exhibition give us an inside view into what holds value for them. While most are still living, the record of their journeys speak of faith and trust, of grief and hope, of despair and healing, of failure and redemption, of lessons and losses, of warnings and vindication. They address the deeply human questions we can’t help but ask. They encourage us to ponder the infinite, even though we know the answers will remain veiled until viewed from above. Please visit many times, and take your time.  

Consider the things that you would wish to be remembered for. What might be included in your epitaph?

What if you knew you were going to die?

What would be the one thing you would want to leave with the world?

How would you want to be remembered?

What might be included in your epitaph?
