Think on These Things: The Art of Wisnu Sasongko will be on display from March 7 through April 27 at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, 409 Prospect St., in New Haven. Wisnu Sasongko, a 2002 graduate of the Faculty of Fine Art, Institut Seni Indonesia Yogyakarta, is the 2004- 2005 Paul T. Lauby Artist in Residence at the Overseas Ministries Study Center in New Haven.

A painter of evocative acrylic and oil images, Sasongko has exhibited in Germany, Canada, the United States, and Indonesia. His art has been published by the Asian Christian Art Association.

Sasongko, raised in a Christian home, committed his life to Christ in 1997, which transformed the “cultural and spiritual mandates” of his artistry and gave fresh purpose for his life. “Now my paintings retell the true story of how we are to love each other.”

A reception will be held to honor the artist and the exhibition on Thursday, March 31 from 4:30 to 6:00 pm at the Institute, featuring a performance by the Wesleyan Gamelan Ensemble. Free parking is available.

The exhibition is presented in partnership with the Overseas Ministries Study Center with support from the Yale Divinity School.
