Each generation seeks to translate transcendence and define sacred space for itself. John Ruskin and Lilias Trotter sought beauty and truth in their own time. The Washington Arts Group (WAG) does the same today. WAG is a non-profit organization founded in 1978 to connect spirituality and the arts in the Washington, D.C. area and abroad. Founding director Jerry Eisley, also a curator and art dealer, will discuss the intersection of art and culture with belief from the perspective of the displaced artist. He will address the question, what would modern art have been like without the influence of Ruskin and Trotter?
