For-Site Foundation presents Sanctuary — featuring contemporary prayer rugs — in cooperation with Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture (FMCAC). Installed in FMCAC’s historic Chapel, the contemporary prayer rugs by 36 artists from 22 countries feature For-Site’s mission of art about place through highlighting the need for personal sanctuary space. Each rug will feature the artists’ diverse backgrounds of ideologies and belief system, while unifying them through the same medium: prayer rugs.
Visitors to the exhibit are encourage to remove their shoes before entering the Chapel space.
