Intersection: Art & The Spirit
Workshop with Kevin Wallace

Saturday, February 23, 2019 / 1:00 - 4:00 pm

Historically, most religious traditions - from indigenous cultures to the great civilizations - used the arts to enhance the spiritual experience. Most of the body of human artifact which we now refer to as ‘art’ consists of objects used in religious rituals or those that depict religious themes. Due to their strong emotional impact and ability to act immediately and directly upon our perception, the arts have the ability to enhance religious experience, and evoke a sense of transcendence, or the presence of some deeper or divine presence. The arts enhance religious experience by evoking strong emotions that preclude conceptual thought and may even invoke a sense of transcendence or the presence of the divine.
