Sitting in Threnody

IMG_0656

In the early 1970s, abstract painter Cleve Gray created a series of 14 large panels entitled “Threnody” as a lamentation on the Vietnam War.  The work was commissioned by the Neuberger Museum of Purchase, New York. In July of 2008, Threnody was re-installed in the Neuberger Museum and three meditation workshops were offered to accompany the exhibit.  Truly a powerful space to sit. [NOTE: Threnody, from the Greek threnoidia, is a song or hymn of mourning.]
