Spirituality and the Art Museum in Contemporary America

Ann Braude, director of the Women's Studies in the Religion Program at HDS, will participate in a discussion titled "Spirituality and the Art Museum in Contemporary America." As a museum, we strive to connect with our visitors in ways that inspire empathy and respect. How can we engage with the intricacies of spirituality in our galleries? Join leading scholars of religion and sociology for a thought-provoking discussion on the changing role of spirituality in our country today. Braude, Courtney Bender, and Omid Safi will unpack the histories of spirituality and the ways in which various religious and cultural traditions have shaped contemporary understanding and practice. Sponsor: Smithsonian National Museum of Asian Art. Wednesday, August 5, 2020, 6:00 PM. Online. For more info visit www.eventbrite.com.
