Love, in the context of this exhibition, is defined by a commitment to the spiritual growth and interconnectedness of the individual, their community, and stewardship of the planet. The works in Radical Love are grounded in ideas of devotion, abundance, and beauty; here, otherness and marginality is celebrated, adorned, and revered. Video, sculpture, photography and wall paintings and hangings carry a powerful message. The standout: Evidence of Things Not Seen by Bradley McCallum an Jacqueline Tarry: an entire wall of the mugshots of the 104 civil rights protestors who were arrested in the January 1956 Montgomery Bus Boycotts. Each portrait is composed of an oil painting and a photographic image on glass hovering just over it, creating a holographic look.
