The Power of Sacred Art: Beauty that Saves and Shatters

$45, registration required

Our chapter’s Chair, Dr. Johan van Parys, has been invited to speak at a special Mia event, involving drinks, appetizers, enlightenment, and a docent-led tour. Please join us for this exclusive event as we discuss sacred art and its profound influence.

Religion in its many different forms has acknowledged the formidable power of art throughout the ages. In response, some religions have embraced art; others have rejected it. As a result, great works have been created by some and destroyed by others. The questions raised centuries ago remain even today: What is the relationship between art and religion? May art critique religion? In turn, may religion censor art? Can a museum become a sacred space? Can a sacred space become a museum? What makes art such a powerful tool for religion?
