Infinite Compassion Punch Card

Infinite Compassion Punch Card

The Compassion Punch Card is a piece of playful paperwork based on the artwork by artist Ori Alon. Its design borrows from frequent customer cards, in that, every time you engage in an act of compassion, you hold punch or mark the appropriate space.

Identifying every day acts of compassion is the first step to performing them and spreading compassion throughout your life, your borough, your city, and beyond.

Have another idea on how to be compassionate in your every day life? Let us know via Facebook or Twitter  #infinitecompassion

Compassion Punch Cards can be picked up at both Staten Island Museum locations: 

Staten Island Museum at Snug Harbor, 1000 Richmond Terrace, SI, NY 10301

This exhibit has been made possible, in part, through support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services

A collaboration with Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, Infinite Compassion introduces visitors to Buddhist art, culture and belief across Asia. After the Buddha, Avalokiteshvara, is the most ubiquitous deity in Mahayana Buddhism. This revered Bodhisattva promotes compassion. The exhibit will interpret this aspect of Buddhist art with sculptures, ritual objects, and paintings (thangkas) from India, Tibet, China, Nepal and Japan, as well as contemporary Asian art.

After the Buddha, Avalokiteshvara, is the most ubiquitous deity in Mahayana Buddhism. This revered Bodhisattva promotes compassion. A Bodhisattva is an individual who, upon achieving enlightenment, renounces his/her own Nirvana (extinction) in order to help others achieve enlightenment. The exhibit will interpret this aspect of Buddhist art with 46 sculptures, ritual objects, paintings (thangkas) and photographs from India, Tibet, China, Nepal and Japan, as well as contemporary Asian art.

Guest Curator and scholar Patricia Karetzky, (O. Munsterberg Chair of Asian Art, Bard College), developed the exhibition content in collaboration with the two museums. Additional works will be on loan from the Rubin Museum of Art; the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Queens College and private collectors.

“Students will see and touch exhibits that they don’t have in their classrooms,” said Hilary Ayala, Con Edison director of Strategic Partnerships. “This is a chance for us to support teachers and students in our local schools.”

“We are so pleased to have the opportunity to provide STEM programming to local schools through the support of Con Edison,” said the Museum’s Manager of Education Christine Szeluga. “By providing STEM education for students, especially for middle school youth, Con Edison STEM Days Out will spark a great interest in science, technology, engineering and math and offer opportunities students may not have otherwise had.”

 

Con Edison provides more than $10 million in financial and in-kind contributions to students and nonprofits in New York City and Westchester that enhance STEM education. Funding includes support for scholarships to students majoring in STEM fields, as well as program support for summer internships and year-round programs benefitting underprivileged and minority students.

The Staten Island Museum is opening its first new exhibition at their Snug Harbor location since the facility opened one year ago. Infinite Compassion: Avalokiteshvara in Asian Art, a collaboration with the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, introduces visitors to Buddhist art, culture, and belief across Asia.

After the Buddha, Avalokiteshvara, is the most ubiquitous deity in Mahayana Buddhism. This revered Bodhisattva promotes compassion. A Bodhisattva is an individual who, upon achieving enlightenment, renounces his/her own Nirvana (extinction) in order to help others achieve enlightenment. The exhibit will interpret this aspect of Buddhist art with 46 sculptures, ritual objects, paintings (thangkas) and photographs from India, Tibet, China, Nepal and Japan, as well as contemporary Asian art.

Guest Curator and scholar Patricia Karetzky, (O. Munsterberg Chair of Asian Art, Bard College), developed the exhibition content in collaboration with the two museums. Additional works will be on loan from the Rubin Museum of Art; the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Queens College and private collectors.

This year-long exhibition will also host new programs such as: Meditation 101 in the gallery, Community Days and Family Days, bus tours between the Staten Island Museum and the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, and special guest speaker events. In an effort to apply the tenets of Infinite Compassion, the Museum will partner with the social practice and performance artist Ori Alon and his Center for Supportive Bureaucracy (CSB) to administer Forgiver’s Licenses and Compassion Punch Cards. The CSB project, through Mr. Alon, creates custom designed "licenses, certificates, citations" which cut to the heart of growing kindness, love, acceptance, creativity, and compassion through a parody of bureaucracy. These symbolic documents identify and encourage individuals to perform compassionate acts, and applications will be part of community events through the year.
