 Minimalist steel artist Miya Ando has recently chosen to focus on creating public art pieces for spiritual or
 meditative spaces. Her most recent project is a grid of 144 steel squares in the nondenominational
 meditation space of St. John’s Bread and Life. “I believe that nourishing of the soul is also very important
 in the hunger issue,” said Ms. Ando. The piece, titled “Fiat Lux: Let There Be Light,” is “meant to serve as
 a visual representation of transcendence and hope, compassion and serenity in a non-denomination but
 spiritual space,” said Ms. Ando.

 A descendent of Japanese Sword maker Ando Yoshiro Masakatsu, Ms. Ando was raised in two distinct
 cultures – a mountainous region of Northern California and a Buddhist temple in Japan, where she was
 raised by swordsmiths turned Buddhist priests. She has been working with steel canvases for more than a
 decade to create quiet, abstract and meditative environments.

 St. John’s Bread and Life has served Bedford-Stuyvesant residents since 1982. Everyday they serve over
 2,000 meals to hungry New Yorkers. For more information about St. John’s Bread and Life visit
