The Stranger

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Seattle is a major threat to The Stranger's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage of everything happening in Seattle. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Loggia Lectures with Rob Prufer: Visions of the Divine

Thu Jun 11, 7 - 8:30 pm
$5–$25 suggested donation

COVID-19 Update: This event has been rescheduled from its original date due to coronavirus concerns. The date on this page reflects the latest information about this event.

"Throughout history, remarkable women have looked beyond the earthly realm and recounted their experiences with the spiritual. These visions have inspired artists and, in some extraordinary cases, inspired the women themselves to bring the divine to life on canvas. We’ll explore the art of some of these visionary painters, including Hilma af Klint in the early 20th century. We’ll question why there was such a surge in mystical accounts beginning in the Middle Ages, from women such as Hildegard of Bingen, Bridget of Sweden and Teresa of Avila, and consider why their revelations were so widely published, studied—and depicted by artists. Who knows how this will influence our experience with the surreal paintings of Nicole Gordon on exhibit in Altered States.

The Loggia Lecture Series is inspired by the Italian loggia, an outdoor space for engaging others in conversation or simply admiring the artfulness of the passing world. Each Loggia Lecture illuminates a significant art history topic that dovetails with an exhibition at BAM, creating opportunities for lively discussion throughout." (Promo Copy)
