Fourth Annual World Art Day Exhibition at Scientology Church
Arts du Temps, a celebration in honor of World Art Day
The Brussels branch of the Churches of Scientology for Europe hosts a month-long art festival each year in honor of World Art Day April 15, the birthday of Leonardo da Vinci.
The artwork is on display on the ground floor of the Church and in its expansive Public Information Hall. It is open to the public April 12 to May 14 at Boulevard de Waterloo 103 in the heart of Brussels.
“The artist has an enormous role in the enhancement of today’s and the creation of tomorrow’s reality. He operates in a rank in advance of science as to the necessities and requirements of Man. The elevation of a culture can be measured directly by the numbers of its people working in the field of aesthetics… Because the artist deals in future realities, he always seeks improvements or changes in the existing reality. This makes the artist, inevitably and invariably, a rebel against the status quo. The artist, day by day, by postulating the new realities of the future, accomplishes peaceful revolution.”
The festival is open to the public 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays and 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Providing a venue for local artists to display their works, the 19th-century landmark welcomes local residents and tourists to browse the exhibition, stop by the Church café or its outdoor patio, or attend one of a variety of musical programs throughout the month.
Set in the heart of the city, the Church, which opened in January 2010, reflects the growth of Scientology across the European continent and its commitment to achieving the Aims of Scientology: “A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where Man is free to rise to greater heights.”
The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.
