Rothko Chapel hosts "Mending Bones: Walking a Bone Labyrinth"
Visitors will be invited to step inside a labyrinth composed of ceramic "bones," walk and contemplate ways to end violence against women, and then place a bone in the healing circle as a prayer of intention. The program, "Mending Bones: Walking a Bone Labyrinth," is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 8 at the Rothko Chapel.
The installation will be created by local artist Jo Zider, known for her sculptures in clay and bronze, as well as her relief oil paintings. Zider is a graduate of the University of Houston and has been teaching, creating and exhibiting art extensively in Texas since 1975.
The labyrinth encourages "walking meditation," a contemplative practice that relies on being mindful of taking one step and then another.
