THEMES/ MISSION STATEMENT & LETTER: Prayers: From the World; Prayers: from Los Angeles

The world is a chaotic place that seems to grow more painful for us to endure & more overwhelming as we try to express our concerns. As a people, we have lot of anger, a lot of hurt that we cannot sustain. We will hang your positive wishes & concerns. We want to invite the community to bring a "prayer," a small/miniature art piece/ painting or drawing/ photo, etc that shows & tells their individual prayer, wishes, hopes, & dreams for the world today. This event will be a small step towards our collective healing. To take that step, we must make ourselves be heard, esp. where & when we are ignored. What better way to share with each other & support one another than through the precious & accessible medium of art & music.
We will pray together. Share together. Give each other a voice in this special & universal way. We won't just continue to shout & scream at injustice; We put aside ego & speak with each other, sharing our varying interesting & worthwhile perspectives with our art & music. This portion of the benefit event is an INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY EXHIBIT.

Anyone from the community who brings a "Prayer" may hang it up on the walls for all to see & interpret. Everyone will also be a part of the proceeding publication Prayers: from Los Angeles.

Our goal is for this themed Prayers Day / Event to grow worldwide; Choosing a day once a year to come together and accomplish being vocal as we share our Prayers through miniature individual art pieces within our communities. Cultivating positivism and healing together.

“I think that there are certain ideas that are only powerful if you share them, they only matter if you share them. It's kind of like love. Love doesn’t exist in a vacuum you have to share it in order for it to have meaning. And for me, the idea of doing this, these series of prayers is an idea of sharing. I started first by doing very small, miniature portraits of concerns of mine…
Los Angeles Artist/Activist/Founder, Margaret Garcia
