From Rhode Island comes a story of Father Daniel Berrigan, William Stringfellow, and Block Island during the turbulent 1960s and 70s.


Combining an engaging exhibition with a touching film, Seeking Shelter offers historical witness, contemporary relevance, and emotional power to deepen our sense of the past and our insight into the present.


A small group of Block Island-connected individuals created the experience to engage and inform audiences of any age, background, or faith. Its evocation of the healing power of community allows Seeking Shelter to speak to our own time of turmoil.

We are privately-funded, and appreciate donations!

Please contact us to arrange an exhibition rental, a screening of the film, or both.
