WPCA would like to present the photography of Milwaukee-based artist, William Mueller. Mueller spent much of his younger years in search of answers. He turned to religion in hopes of finding the whys and wherefores of life and death. He was raised as a Methodist, practiced as a Catholic, and was a Jehovah Witness as well. Mueller studied eastern religions, including Hinduism and Buddhism, and dabbled in the Black Arts. What he found were holes in all of his religious endeavors. Mueller feels that there is a misguided veneration to the church, being an institution with pomp and circumstance, and not enough emphasis on enlightenment.
In the end, he has come to the conclusion that spiritual thinking, at its core, should not be shackled by rules, regulations, the worship of religious iconography, or the fear that one is going to burn in hell.
