“Portals to Peace" was designed by local artist Lachlan Chambliss and painted in 2016-2017. Each doorway in the mural is a glimpse into scenes meaningful to Muslims in our community. A market scene celebrates West African culture and giving charity. Mountains and valleys fill another window, showing the beauty of the middle east and a journey of faith. The center window is the base of the faith in a higher power. The fourth doorway is a scenes of Asia with a reflection of the effort to disconnect from our daily routines into meditation and prayer. Last but not least, a late night picnic scene represents sharing and the body as a vessel of peace.
