Art as Spiritual Encounter: Discussion of Henri Nouwen's "The Return of the Prodigal Son"

Tue Nov 21, 2017, 4:00PM - 5:00PM

O'Shaughnessy West Gallery

Have you ever considered art to be a catalyst for spiritual reflection? It was for Henri Nouwen, who embarked on a life-long spiritual journey after a chance encounter with and intense look at Rembrandt's painting The Return of the Prodigal Son. Read Nouwen's meditation - eponymously titled The Return of the Prodigal Son - and discuss it in the Snite Museum surrounded by works by the 17th-century Dutch artist in the exhibition Rembrandt's Religious Prints: The Feddersen Collection at the Snite Museum of Art. The discussion will be led by Dr. Leonard DeLorenzo of the McGrath Institute for Church Life. Registration is now closed.

This experience is co-sponsored by Campus Ministry.
