Art's Spirit

April 14, 1985

If "spiritual art" belongs only in hushed galleries and not where there are other activities, how does Suzanne Muchnic explain the "Last Supper" in a dining room, or the Sistine Chapel, which is really a church (" Spiritual Eye' Lost at Loyola Law School," April 9)?

Art is not a dead body to be dissected in a lab anymore than it is just another decoration like the wallpaper. I doubt the artists represented in the "The Spiritual Eye: Religious Imagery in Contemporary Los Angeles Art" exhibit at the Loyola Law School did their work solely to have it analyzed by an art critic.

And I'm sure that between now and May 31 many busy students will find the art and see what the artists saw. "Busy" is what the body does. The mind can always take time out to look and see any work of art, spiritual or not.
