Luncheon and Presentation by Milan Spak
Collegeville Institute Artist-in-Residence
Milan will speak about three unique artists from whom he has drawn inspiration: László Mednyanszky, Bohuslav Reynek and Tivadar Kosztka Csontváry.
Milan writes, “These artists – who grew as lonely cedars in a barren land – provide us with shade where we can heal our thirst for beauty and take a rest from the burning heat of a secularized world. Their lives testified to the unceasing search for perfection, a self-effacement, that cannot but be mirrored in their works. They did not consciously aim at “resacredalization” of art; nevertheless they brought back a long-buried smell of a forgotten perfume of the sacred at the price of their suffering souls.”
