Exhibited in conjunction with Places for Contemplation in Public Buildings: Constructing a Model Space for Reflection.

Open Spaces, Sacred Places is a book written by Tom and Kitty Stoner that introduces nature as a means to heal communities in need. A series of inspirational stories told of passionate and persistent people who have brought communities together to create public areas of respite, it dramatically demonstrates how nature has the power to heal and unify in our increasingly frenetic, 21st century world. A complementary exhibition to Places for Contemplation in Public Buildings, this exhibition features imagery from the Open Spaces book.

Tom and Kitty Stoner are the founders of the TKF Foundation which supports the creation of public green spaces that offer an antidote for the stressful, divisive, and isolating effects of life in today’s complex world.
