No. 39 Love One Another

Design: Laura Paull, Volcano, CA

Stained glass, mixed media, 2022

I took inspiration from the artwork sent by children in sympathy with the Tree of Life congregation. This multimedia mosaic is based on a simple drawing by 14-year-old Krista P. from Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida …

Racism and antisemitism have such a long and complicated history and yet it seems to take very little exposure for these hateful ideologies to take root in successive generations. I believe we have to stand together to educate and create a more loving and equitable world. Which is why I was so touched by young Krista’s fundamental injunction to just “Love One Another.” Easier said than done. But art can hold that vision.
