The 2023 Tri-State Creation Care Conference
This Saturday, Feb. 25, 9 am (CST) – Noon (doors open 8:30) at Aldersgate UMC, 5130 Lincoln Ave., Evansville
We highlight artist Dawn Murtaugh at this year’s conference. Dawn’s specialty is recycled fabric art. Inspired by the photos coming out of the James Webb space observatory, she has created cosmic images using tiny pieces of fabric. Her work is truly unique. In addition, proceeds of any piece sold will be donated to Tri-State CC.
Keynote by John Mundell, the Vatican’s Global Director of the Laudato Si’ Action Platform. If not possible to attend in person, the keynote can be seen virtually. For Zoom invite, click this link: Virtual keynote registration
