Featuring work by 31 artists from 7 different countries, Alphabet of Art is a true international exhibit that examines the visual importance of letters, numbers, and music, bringing them together to create works where different ideas, principles and approaches to art meet. A first attempt of a larger project to identify the motives which compel artists to go beyond traditional boundaries.

Over the course of the month, in addition to the work of these thirty-one artists dedicated to raising human consciousness to its highest level, International House will host films and lectures elaborating on the use of symbolism throughout human history. Also included in the month-long program of events:
