'Contemplative Practice' BIG IDEA at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts

Fri, Mar 31, 2017 (All day) to Fri, Jun 23, 2017 (All day)

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.
