Buddhism, Transcendence, and the Urban Landscape
$4 / Members and Loyola, faculty, staff and students: Free

Dr. Stephen Asma from Columbia College will talk about the way Buddhism breaks down the traditional religious tension between spiritual and mundane reality. Mindful meditation transforms everyday experience into spiritual exercise. Asma will discuss the way in which Indira Johnson’s Ten Thousand Ripples community art project exemplifies the Buddhist message of transcendental everydayness.

This lecture is part of Chicago Artists Month 2013, the 18th annual celebration of Chicago’s vibrant art community presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. For more information, visit chicagoartistsmonth.org.

Shanti Ahimsa
Free

Inspired by Indira Johnson’s project Ten Thousand Ripples, this performance by dancer Helen Lee is designed to promote peace and nonviolence. The Sanskrit word ahimsa goes beyond its traditional meaning of physical nonviolence to include nonviolent feelings, thoughts, words, or actions to ourselves and others. Ahimsa calls for maintaining compassion towards yourself and others by being kind and treating all things with care.

This lecture is part of Chicago Artists Month 2013, the 18th annual celebration of Chicago’s vibrant art community presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. For more information, visit chicagoartistsmonth.org.

November

Tuesday, November 12, 6:00 p.m.
Angels of Paris
$4 / Members and Loyola, faculty, staff and students: Free

Join us for a slide lecture and book signing of Rosemary Flannery’s book of photographs entitled Angels of Paris: An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris. Angels are everywhere in Paris, not just on churches but in unexpected places: holding a lightning rod atop the Théâtre du Châtelet’s roof, adorning a seventeenth-century gilded sundial inside a courtyard at the Sorbonne, hovering above a railroad headquarters where a beautiful stone frieze features young angels flying in to work on the tracks. Subtly, subliminally, the angels are a part of the fanciful and romantic spirit of Paris. Angels of Paris features beautiful photographs taken from dawn to dusk, in all seasons, accompanied by text explaining the story behind the creation of each angel and of the location in which it is found.

RSVP to luma@luc.edu or 312.915.7608.
