Windhover

Windhover [wind·hov·er] n. a contemplative center or secular spiritual meditation and workshop space located in the heart of campus, named for a series of paintings by Nathan Oliveira that grace its walls.


NOTES: "The Windhover" is a sonnet by Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889) that was written on May 30, 1877. The poem inspired artist Nathan Oliveira (1928-2010), a leading member of the Bay Area figurative movement and a Stanford University professor of art, to create a series of same-titled works. Oliveira's works inspired the creation of the Windhover contemplative center, both as a space for personal reflection and to house his Windhover series (all in one place as he envisioned).

See: The Stanford Daily, November 2, 2014 "Students Weigh In On Windhover Uses" by Elizabeth Wallace.
