Art for World Peace by Sri Chinmoy is an exhibition of paintings and drawings dedicated to peace and harmony.
Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) was an Indian born artist, poet, musician, author, athlete, philosopher and spiritual guide. He moved to America in 1964 and during his life in the West created over 140,000 pieces of abstract mystical art, along with nearly 16 million drawings of birds symbolising the freedom of the human soul. Sri Chinmoy never charged for his original artworks, always seeing his art as a selfless service to humanity.
“Art is not something to be understood, it is something to be felt” – Sri Chinmoy
Opening ceremony is October 31 at 2pm.
This exhibition is on display until December 6.
