The Sacred Art of Altars exhibit is currently at the Bijou Theater through September 28. Sixty artists were given 10-by-14-inch boxes, which each artist used to create an altar.

"Each one is very specifically unique to the artist and their personal spiritual feelings and selections, choices," Zet Baer says.

They are all on display at the Bijou in the Wonderland of the Americas Mall. On September 28th, the public has the get a chance to bid on, and maybe own, one of the custom pieces.
