The Gathering Place recently concluded Love & Harmony, an exhibit highlighting love in the Tulsa community. In addition to the art installation, Gathering Place partnered with Family and Children’s Services’ Women in Recovery and John 3:16 to ensure the effort of celebrating “Love and Harmony” will have continuity throughout the Tulsa community.
This initiative was supported by selecting individuals and providing a special gift to the honorees to showcase Love, Harmony, and Kindness, said Heather Alexander, Vice President of Programming at The Gathering Place. The families received a mix of donations from Reasor’s, QuikTrip and Green Country Habitat for Humanity Green Country ReStore, as well as financial aid, while visiting the exhibit with Gathering Place leadership.
“’Love and Harmony’ featured local Tulsa artists showcasing cultural diversity and unity through photography, music and murals,” Alexander said. “As part of the mission of unity, Gathering Place hoped this art installation would share a compelling story by capturing the interaction and experiences of individuals from all walks of life.”
In addition to the Love and Harmony event, Women in Recovery will also host an alumni event at the Gathering Place. The organization will provide a craft for kids to make spring flowers and the space to socialize in an outdoor setting, providing a safe, socially distanced environment for participants.
