Mar 31–Jun 23, 2017

What is the connection between art and contemplation? For centuries, artists have created religious objects meant to offer a contemplative or devotional experience. But how do art and contemplation intersect outside established religious traditions? This BIG IDEA project uses work by artists engaged with contemplative practices as the basis for a larger investigation of the role of meditation and mindfulness in our world today.
