About the Inherited Beauty art exhibition:

We all carry within us the gifts of our ancestors: inherited love, nobility, creativity, culture, belief, humanity. These can all be summed up in Inherited Beauty.

As our unique heritages contribute to the inherent oneness of humanity, how will the gifts that we have received transform into the gifts of beauty that we will pass on?
