The Happiness Show

CAVA's Summer Theme Exhibition at
Epiphany Center for the Arts

Sometimes the smallest things
make us happy.

“…the little stone whose ‘coat of elemental brown a passing universe put on.’”
—Emily Dickinson
The smallest things can surprise and delight, and fill us with wonder and joy. 
In the month that for many carries the celebration of independence, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness, what does happiness mean to you today, in the here-and-now? CAVA invites you to create your art with happiness in mind!
