Visio Divina - Encountering God through Art

  • Minneapolis Institute of Art 2400 3rd Ave S Minneapolis, Minnesota 55404 (map)

Although the name may sound strange, Visio Divina is simply another way to pray and connect with God. Visio Divina is similar to the ancient Christian practice of Lectio Divina (reading a short passage of Scripture three times, paying attention to a word or phrase that stands out). Lectio Divina allows space for God to connect the Bible to the everyday life of the reader. In a similar way, Visio Divina invites us to encounter God through a piece of artwork. One prayerfully considers and interacts with a picture, photograph, icon, or artwork.

Join us at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts where we will look at some famous inspirational pieces of art and try this more “hands on” approach to prayer. We will gather in front of the MIA gift shop at 6:30 pm. 

Parking in paid ramp or on street.
Family friendly for ages 8+.
