Visionary Art


William Blake - Illustrations to Gray #60

What is the function of poetry, painting, music, film, and the other art forms? For some artists it is to bring us face to face with enlightenment, to bring us into the midst of an undefinable but clearly visible, audible, palpable spiritual experience. Such art has often arisen from visionary experiences or or induces visionary experience when we enjoy it.

We will look at visual art, music, literature, film, and discuss the nature of the meditative and mystical experiences that correlate with these art forms.
