"Moksha: Photography by Fazal Sheikh" weaves the artist-activist's portraits and the stories of a community of widows in the Hindu pilgrimage site of Vrindavan. A marginalized segment of Hindu society since ancient times, widows have few places of sanctuary. In Vrindavan, a city holy to the Hindu god Krishna, these women chant and pray every day in the hopes of obtaining moksha, release from the constant cycle of death and rebirth. The exhibit runs July 11–Nov. 30, 2014. Visit umfa.utah.edu for information.
