“Time spent among the trees is time never wasted.” ~ Unknown
Last week, I was drawn to Towson Unitarian Universalist Church (TUUC), a place my father built back in the late 1960s, approximately fifty years ago. Ever since I’ve returned to my Baltimore roots, I’ve wanted to visit TUUC, purely for nostalgic reasons. But, what motivated me to finally act on my desires was art hanging in the sanctuary which is part of Water Ways, a traveling Smithsonian exhibit brought to Baltimore County by the Historical Society HSBC), the Maryland Humanities Council and other appreciated sponsors.
Here are just a few photos of the artwork hanging at TUUC , which compliment the culturally-rich water theme.
Although the denominations of faith of the two Towson Maryland churches my father and his company built were different, the serene grounds surrounding each brings a commonality to the spiritual experience. Both peaceful locations invite a worshiper to explore how the five elements of nature (space, air, fire, water, and earth) affects their own belief in creation, God and synchronicity with the world at large.
In order to take in all the events affiliated with the Water Ways project, I’d encourage you to visit the Alms House in Cockeysville, home to the HSBC as well as some of the tangential venues affiliated with the program. Find out more through this link.
At the satellite sites there are other interesting multi-media events, displays and artifacts, some combining several mediums of art. The exhibit runs until July 6th, so there is still plenty of time to get out and see and do!
