We have all searched for home. Some have found it, while for others it is a lifelong quest. In this century the entire interwoven globe has reeled from constant motion to arrested stop – and soon, back again — reacting to displacement – war – pandemic – violence – poverty – danger – climate – upheaval – politics – chaos – nature’s whims – disease. As the pendulum swings, some search for an ideal PLACE; others yearn for psychic or spiritual sanctuary. The search may be a physical progress or a journey of the spirit; the seeking may be voluntary or forced; tragic or hopeful. The goal is a better life and safety for ourselves and those we love – the security of HOME. Artists are sharing the quests – giving faces to the seekers – exploring the paths – joining the search. We know when we get there.
