Buddhism and Art, Intro-adv: Thurs, 6 - 9 pm
Register This is an art appreciation and discussion course open to all.
Lectures will include 35mm slides, and a few film clips from time to time

The Buddha was a real person who lived in India in the 6th century BCE.  Today, the post-WWII period, a number of contemporary North American artists credit the importance of their travels and studies of Japanese culture (both Buddhism and Kami-no-michi) in their own development as artists--what some call "finding Buddha-mind."  These artists include:  Lucy Arai, Robin Campbell, John Goodyear, Isamu Noguchi, Norman Takeuchi, and Krzystof Wodiczko, among others.  In six classes we look further at these influences.
