    create a 3-part series of multi-media presentations to highlight the ideas of Joseph Campbell

    Louisville, CO – We all at some point in our lives ask, “why am I here?,” and “what is the purpose of life?” Mythologist Joseph Campbell has shed some light on these basic questions. A three-part series on the stories, myth and meaning of the ideas of Joseph Campbell will be coming to Louisville in February. For the following Sundays, February 8, 15, 22, 6:30-8:00 pm, at the Dona Laurita Gallery (820 Main Street, Louisville, CO 80027), join Steve O’Bryan, professor of Ancient Greek and Roman History and local photographer, for three nights of lively lectures and discussions. A multi-media presentation is included with video clips and photographs to highlight some of the important ideas of Joseph Campbell.

    “Joseph Campbell has been a part of my personal awareness, and my photography complements my interest in him and his ideas,” says Steve O’Bryan, “Campbell brings to light the meaning of being alive by following your bliss and photography is a way I follow my bliss.”

    Campbell focuses on myths, stories, and religions and how they contribute to the meanings that resonate within our life experiences. Also to be explored are the shared functions of myth and religion, the idea of knowing one’s purpose in life versus the experience of feeling truly alive, the concept of eternity, the hero’s journey, and, of course, bliss.

    If you have ever wondered about Joseph Campbell’s ideas or have been considering what brings meaning to one’s life, O’Bryan sends a special invitation to you. The cost for the full series is $45 or $20 for each night separately. Tickets are limited. For tickets and more information visit Dona Laurita Gallery’s website at, email, or call 303-818-1616.
