St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is transforming its sanctuary with “Our Neighbors, Ourselves” into an art gallery with the hope of providing a space for art and creativity that raises awareness about the lives of local immigrants.
Come on February 27, 2020 at 6:30pm for an evening of art and music. Hear the stories of local artists whose passion it is to share the stories of those who have come to New Hampshire from around the globe.
The evening features local artists as well as pieces from Uncaged Art, a traveling exhibit of art created by teenagers held in the Tornillo Children’s Detention Center in El Paso County, TX. Music from Los Sugar Kings, and food from Vida Cantina.
All proceeds from this event will go to the NH Bail and Bond Fund that raises and disperses funds for detained immigrants, and the New Hampshire Council of Churches.
