Paint Out and Demo: Guest Artist Maggie Capettini at Baha’i House of Worship

July 25 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm CDT

This Sunday is a double thriller, a Demo by Maggie Capettini at the stunning Baha’i House of Worship

This temple project took 50 years to be completed and opened it’s doors in 1953.

Baha’i principles are communicated throughout this design. For example, to illustrate the Baha’i belief in the unity of religion, the French architect Bourgeois brought together elements of religious architecture from around the world. The Temple’s arabesque panels embrace natural light during the day and illuminate from within at night, creating a “Temple of Light and Unity.”  There are also gardens around the temple.  Please check out the website to learn more    https://www.bahai.us/bahai-temple/architecture/

Also, take time to look at Maggie Capettini’s artwork and you’ll be sure to attend the demo.  https://www.maggiecapettini.com/about
