A Framework of Spirituality and World Religions
This is a juried competition
The Eccles Art Center announces a competitive exhibit that celebrates the diversity of religious experience and spirituality. In our research, we have noted that shamans, healers and wisdom keepers throughout the ages, the world continents and peoples believe that human spirituality is composed of three elements: Spirit, Mind and Body that are influenced by: Relationships, Values and Life Purpose. For this competition the EAC is looking for original ideas and works that explore these concepts.
