A Spiritual Journey with William Claassen/ Hallery Exhibition and “Feed your Soul Sunday” Event

 

As you walk down the Hallery, you find yourself transported.  Dervishes whirl; a contemplative young monk bathes a statue’s feet; an elderly ascetic begs; two child-initiates in robes link arms.   This is the exhibition “Pilgrimage: India, Thailand, and Turkey,” by William Claassen.

Claassen, a graduate of the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism, is a career nomad.  He has traveled to more than forty countries for projects ranging from social activism to journalism, but his special interest in religious diversity has been a thread tying together much of his wide experience.  The images in his current exhibition come from the two and a half years that he was researching his book Alone in Community: Journeys into Monastic Life Around the World.

On September 25th we will have the opportunity to discuss the images with the artist, and to hear a reading from Alone in Community.  So stock up on local produce and art at the Sunday Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market, and then come to PS: for a journey to more exotic climes. 

2 pm on Sunday, September 25th, in the Hallery. 

The exhibition is up now through the end of September.

I hope you will join us.
