Season by Date

At the Rothko Chapel, we are committed to presenting programs that engage diverse constituencies, elevate the spirit, foster dialogue and champion ethical action. Rather than providing a forum for particular ideological agendas, the Rothko Chapel’s programs seek to weigh differing assertions through a process of public questioning and critical response. We aspire to present programs that focus upon injustice throughout the world, ask the difficult questions of conscience and foster passionate debate, ever mindful of our charge to celebrate the human spirit in its many expressions.

The Rothko Chapel is pleased to present a distinguished roster of scholars, musicians, journalists, and spiritual leaders who will speak, perform, and lead meditations. Please see below for listing of 2013-2014 Programs.

Please note, all of the Rothko Chapel's programs are held on site at 3900 Yupon Street unless otherwise noted. With rare exception, all programs are free. Seating is limited and is first-come, first-served. When indicated, please RSVP by following the provided link. To download a copy of the season brochure, please click HERE.
