A Vibrant Tapestry: Exploring Creativity, Culture, and Faith

A Vibrant Tapestry: Exploring Creativity, Culture, and Faith

8/20/22 - 8/28/22

There is no one story, no single author of our identity or single tradition that defines us. A great blending of cultures and peoples has made and shaped America, like a tapestry with its many hues, textures and layers woven together. In this week, we welcome a diverse line-up of multi-disciplinary folk artists, including The Avett Brothers for morning and evening Amphitheater programs. Together, we’ll trace the threads of the American tapestry in search of the origins, evolution and impact of our country’s music and culture.

About Chautauqua Institution: Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue. CHQ Assembly is the online expression of Chautauqua Institution's mission.
