December 8 with Sylvia Martin
The Art for Meditation Tour will feature several pieces of religious art as well as two secular pieces with a focus on how this art was used for meditation in the past and how it can be used for meditation today. Tour participants will also learn about the relationship between meditation and devotions.
December 15 with Stephanie Raphael-Nakos
Advent is the time of preparation, waiting and watching laced with wonder. Art can facilitate our preparation and add beauty, insight and hope that we might tend to this special season and ourselves in deeper and more satisfying ways. The Advent tour may help us focus on how waiting, watching and wonder can be exciting in different ways than shopping, decorating and hustle and bustle.
December 22 wtih Barb Hansen
The season of Advent, when we await the coming of Christ, is a good time to review the history and purpose of religious art. We will explore some beautiful religious paintings, most of them painted in the 15th and 16th centuries.
