What Does Compassion Look Like?™, Group Show at ArtXchange, Seattle, WA|
Woodcliff Lake, NJ – March 28, 2008
Artist Hee Sung Lee, a resident of Woodcliff Lake, NJ, is participating in What Does Compassion Look Like?™ a multidisciplinary exhibition exploring the power of compassion through art organized by ArtXchange in Seattle, WA. This collaborative exhibition features 35 artists from around the world with the mission of engaging the hearts and minds of our community by highlighting and celebrating the power of compassion through art and creative dialogues.
Hee Sung Lee’s inspiration comes from her meditation and dreams, as she pursues understanding of humans and the universe. Hee Sung writes “When the energy and color of all living things surrounds me, I sense the peace and tranquility of this living universe and realize generosity, forgiveness and compassion are the most needed components of life.” Through Sanskrit ‘Om’ as a recurring theme and a manifestation of the artist herself, the viewer, or the humanity as collective being, She depicts the connection between human and the universe, and the creatures and their environment.
Seeds of Compassion is a five-day historic gathering, from April 11-15, 2008, to engage the hearts and minds of Seattle community by highlighting the vision, science, and programs of early social, emotional, and cognitive learning. Seeds of Compassion is honored to welcome His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama to Seattle to participate in dialogue with leading educators, researchers and policy makers, and to share his inspiration for a more compassionate world. What Does Compassion Look Like? ™ is an artistic movement organized by Seeds of Compassion. It uses the pure and awe-inspiring vision of children and adults to spread the message of compassion through creative expression. The campaign engages our hearts and minds through reflection, creativity and community dialogue highlighting and celebrating the power of compassion. www.seedsofcompassion.org
A portion of the proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to Seeds of Compassion. The Opening Reception & Gala on Friday, April 11, 5-8 pm is open to the public, free of admission charge, and the exhibition continues through May 30, 2008.
