Spring evokes the delightful freshness and beauty of the season. Poets, singers, and sages of all times and cultures have celebrated the energy of this time of year: youthful, vital, joyous. Come enjoy uplifting, vibrant colors and images of healing, rejuvenation, and new growth within nature and the self.

The mission of Life Force Arts Foundation (LFA) is to advance the field of spiritual art through artistically excellent exhibits, events, and publications that explore the connection of art and spirituality. We define spiritual art as visual, literary, or performing art that flows from spiritual practice, strives to connect the audience with Spirit, and creates spiritual awakening, healing, or evolution. We focus on the arts as a common ground of human expression, where artists and audiences of diverse spiritual traditions can honor each other, and share their personal and collective experiences of the spiritual aspect of life. LFA’s goals are to develop spiritual artists, the spiritual arts audience, and the spiritual arts community. The Foundation operates Life Force Arts Center (LFAC), Chicago’s spiritual art gallery and performance space, which presents visual art exhibits, dance, theater, and music performances, author book signings, and workshops with artists who are experts in spiritual artmaking.
