The Town of Oakland reveals its new exhibition, “Places of Worship,” which explores a diverse array of organized religion and individual spirituality, debuting at the Healthy West Orange Arts and Heritage Center at the Town of Oakland on Thursday, Nov. 4.
The exhibition dives into how we make a connection to a higher power through colorful pieces created by Central Florida artists and includes plein air paintings of Oakland churches.
Through historic photos and artifacts, the public will learn more about the history of Oakland’s many churches and their roles as pillars of the community. A work of art itself – the cornerstone piece of the Arts and Heritage Center – is the circa 1919 Oakland Presbyterian Church’s stained-glass window, which is on permanent display.
“Places of Worship” will run until Friday, Jan. 14, 2022.
