Event Details:

Are you seeking a deeper understanding of the connection between art and spirituality? Do you yearn to appreciate the sacred elements in Western art? Join us on May 23rd at The Sheen Center for a divinely inspired event featuring author and art historian Stephen Auth as he presents his latest book, "Pilgrimage to the Museum: Man's Search for God Through Art and Time."

Allow Auth to be your spiritual guide as he takes you on a reverential journey through 5,000 years of Western art, from the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, to the medieval and Renaissance periods, and finally to the modern masterpieces of Monet and Picasso. Discover the profound ways in which art has been a conduit for humanity's quest for the divine throughout the ages, and experience a renewed sense of awe and wonder.

Stephen Auth, a dedicated member of the Regnum Christi movement and a founding member of the Lumen Institute's National Board, is deeply committed to revealing the interwoven nature of art, history, and faith. Together with his wife, Evelyn, he shares his passion and knowledge through spiritual art tours at the Metropolitan Museum, aptly named "Man's Search for God, A History of Art Through the Prism of Faith."

In addition to his spiritual pursuits, Steve serves as the Chief Investment Officer of Federated Global Equities and Executive Vice President of Federated Hermes. An accomplished financial expert, Steve leads a team responsible for managing over $60 billion in assets. A distinguished alumnus of Princeton University and Harvard Business School, he frequently shares his insights on CNBC, Fox Business News, and Bloomberg TV.

Auth's philanthropic work reflects his commitment to faith and service, encompassing projects such as "Immokalee Rebuilds," the American University of Bulgaria, and the Pontifical Mission Society.
