“Namaste” is a multi media exhibition on view in the Community Room. The theme “Namaste” was chosen to allow artists to show us a representation of their peaceful place in a world that has become increasingly filled with stress, turbulence, and tension.
We all need our peaceful place!

“A Moment in Cuba”
Photographs by Leo Jung
Third Floor Hall Gallery
Leo Jung is a photographer who travelled to Cuba and captured the daily life of a world long before cellphones and the internet in this wonderful collection. Upon arrival, he realized the timelessness of the country still trapped in the 1960s. The elegant vintage cars drive top down on the small streets amongst barefoot children playing soccer. Without the influence of society today, the Cuban people truly capture the feeling of “simple living.”
