Prayerful Looking

Art and Spirituality

 

Saturday, May 20

10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Fee: $25

Turn  a visit to the art museum into a spiritual retreat marked by "prayerful looking," sometimes known as visio divina. Participants will explore how art relates to their faith tradition and spiritual experience, then curate a tour of art that is particularly meaningful to them.

Open to people of diverse backgrounds in faith, spirituality and art appreciation.  

The cost of the program includes admission and parking at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Participants will meet in the museum lobby at 10 am.

Rev. John Hougen, PhD,  is the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia's program leader for The Art of Interfaith Understanding, using the resources of the Philadelphia Museum of Art to further interfaith understanding through encounter's with art from the world's religions.  He is also an ordained pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and a St. Martin's parishioner.
