Lenten Art Exhibit Blends Poetry, Visual Art, and Imagination
The Center for Lifelong Learning will mark the Lenten season with Poetry, Art, and the Spirituality of the Imagination: A Lenten Meditation. This exhibit combines Scripture, poetry, and the ink drawings of Israel Galindo, Associate Dean. The exhibit will be on view at the Harrington Center from February 28 through May 17, with an artist’s reception on March 4.
“For several years my daily devotional practice involved reading Scripture and poetry with meditation on the text of both,” says Galindo. “Later I incorporated sketching as part of the daily discipline of lectio divina. These ink drawings are a result of that practice.”
Each drawing is accompanied by poetic texts. The viewer is invited to view the art as a response to the poetry, and consider his or her own response. A Lenten study guide will be available as well.
Poetry, Art, and the Spirituality of the Imagination: A Lenten Meditation will be available for viewing Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm at the Harrington Center.
