Meditation is arguably the most ancient, powerful, yet simple spiritual practice in the world. It is known in various forms in nearly all eras and cultures, and plays a part in most religious traditions.

Art & Meditation examines how meditation can affect art both in terms of practice and content. Artworks displayed in both the Kroeber Hall  Department of Art Practice Lobby and Worth Ryder Art Gallery investigate concepts driven by our understanding of visual art done in contemplative practice.

As an exploration of their own meditative and creative practices, students created work in the form of healing scrolls, prayer beads, collaborative drawings inspired by artist Emma Kunz, and sculptural birds based on Conference of the Birds by Sufi poet Attar.

Art & Meditation (Art 164)  is taught by Professor Katherine Sherwood and Professor Azin Seraj.
