Sixty-four faces gaze at the viewer. In between the portraits, text from President Nelson, the Apostles, and other luminaries like Lincoln, Martin Luther King, and Mother Teresa encourage the viewer to come close and get to know the faces. Being a part of God’s family requires humanity to find commonalities and treat each other with love and respect.

"My hope is that the viewer will see each person as a distinct and unique individual but also as part of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts."
