Museum of Contemporary Religious Art
Saint Louis University's Museum of Contemporary Religious Art (MOCRA) is the world's first interfaith museum of contemporary art that engages religious and spiritual themes. MOCRA is dedicated to the ongoing dialogue between contemporary artists and the world's faith traditions, and to serving as a forum for interfaith understanding. In a time when religion is viewed by many in exclusive ways, MOCRA intends to be inclusive and embracing, a center for healing and reconciliation.

DeLuise's photos represent an investigation into the sublime and mundane aspects of the places in which she finds herself. The images in this exhibition center on the ordinary surroundings of Bhutan's remarkable culture, where the idea of devotion in every aspect of one's life is not exotic or unrealistic. DeLuise’s photographs in their making, printing and exhibition, are a meditation on these circumstances and connections: her photos attend to the material aspects of a spiritual life.
