Lorenzo Clayton (Navajo), who currently teaches printmaking at The Cooper Union in New York City and at Parsons School of Design, believes that the Manhattan area radiates a powerful, urban spirituality stemming from its immense cultural diversity. In this exhibition, Expeditions of the Spirit, he expresses this influence in both large installations and intricate works on paper dating from the early 1980s to the present—all of which interweave religious and philosophic world views.
