Join us for a celebration of creativity to commemorate the Twin Holy Days of the Birth of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh, Herald and Founder of the Bahá’i Faith

What is the Twin Luminaries Art Show?

Two bicentenaries are approaching, marking an elapse of 200 years respectively since the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh and Birth of the Báb. We are encouraged to celebrate these highly significant Festivals with friends, family, neighbors and acquaintances, being creative and bold in our means of honoring the Twin Manifestations, whose lives and sacred missions will be recalled on their anniversaries.

“At the heart of these festivities must be a concerted effort to convey a sense of what it means for humanity that these two Luminaries rose successively above the horizon of the world. Of course, this will take different forms in different contexts, extending to a myriad artistic and cultural expressions, including songs, audio-visual presentations, publications and books.” (Universal House of Justice letter dated 18 May 2016)

The widespread Festivals, reverent and uplifting, will be bringing together souls who have glimpsed the timeless splendour of those divine Figures who set in motion an irresistible process of individual and social change.

In this context, a few Bahá’ís have initiated a visual arts show of the works of Bahá’í artists and friends of the Faith around these themes: the timeless splendor of Twin Luminaries, who rose successively above the horizon of the world, their lives and sacred missions, and the irresistible process of individual and social change.
