Arts 

Rainer Maria Rilke once advised a young poet to live everything, especially the questions. 

We address the spiritual—and the cultural and the philosophical—first and foremost through the lens of the arts, recognizing that in today’s world we look to poets and artists to address questions about human life and meaning which were categorized in former times as religious. 

With Rockefeller Chapel, we’re involved in presenting world music and visual arts from China and Europe and South Africa and India and the Middle East. We invite you to seek spiritual connection, of diverse kinds and traditions, through music and the arts—both in the great Gothic setting of the chapel but also in discussions with visiting scholars and artists and filmmakers.
