Forces of Our Time Talk
Baha’i Community of Molokai News Release
Noted artist and author, Mr. Hooper Dunbar, will speak on Tuesday, May 31 at 5:30 p.m. at Kalele Bookstore in Kaunakakai.
His topic is the title of his book, “Forces of Our Time: The Dynamics of Light and Darkness,” which addresses the many forces at play in the age in which we live and how spirit manifests itself in the realm of matter as capacity is developed.
Dunbar’s artistic works have been featured in shows by the Royal Academy of Arts in London, the National Academy of Arts in Shanghai and at the United Nations in New York City, among others. His works have attracted collectors from five continents and he has established studios in California, Spain and Israel.
Over several decades, Dunbar lived in Nicaragua, Chile, Bolivia, Argentina and in his capacity as a member of the Baha’i International Teaching Center traveled widely through India, Africa, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Canada helping to promote the teachings of the Baha’i Faith which include that there’s only one God, that all the world’s great religions have come from the same source, that all mankind is one family and that peace will eventually be established throughout the world.
He was also elected as a member of the Universal House of Justice, the world governing body of the Baha’i Faith, serving that institution for 22 years. The Baha’i World Center is located in Haifa, Israel in the Holy Land. The Universal House of Justice is elected every five years with 181 nations participating.
Throughout his years of service, Dunbar continued painting. Now retired, he splits his time between his studios in California and Spain. His expressionist paintings explore the effects of light on the canvas and on the soul.
