Students, professors, artists, philosophers, and scientists around the world have been asking themselves and others deep and essential questions related to life and death, the sense of existence, the crisis of contemporary art and culture, the problems of science, and the creativity of man.
The longer we live in this world, the deeper and greater the questions that rise and haunt us. These important questions and problems connect us like never before. When science and technologies encounter problems, we all experience painful consequences. When culture loses fundamental values, we all suffer. If, at such times, we get discouraged and lose our direction, we diminish our ability to face the challenges that arise. If we experience the suffering of others as our own in a realistic perspective, we will increase our determination and capacity to overcome what troubles all of us. At ARC Prospect, we are responding to existing and upcoming challenges and are positively changing the surrounding and inner environment of man.
Our Foundation was founded in 2008 in Chicagoland as an international, nonprofit, private organization. The Foundation was born from the never ending studies, search of Truth, and creative work of Paul N. Poloz. Paul has been working on the problems of man for more than twenty five years, and in the process has focused on areas of human creativeness (art, architecture, science), ways of thinking (philosophy, psychology, and religion), and ways of living (spiritual life, enlightenment, and the art of living).
When he started the organization nine years ago, he greatly underestimated the difficulties he would encounter. It soon became apparent to him that the problems of man are much greater and profounder than the foundation’s original mission could address. Therefore, at the end of 2015, the Foundation dramatically changed direction, focusing on deeper perspectives and goals. Paul also understood that in order for the Foundation to accomplish its mission, it needed a unified collaboration of talented, spiritual, and intelligent people with a higher degree of knowledge and expertise in many important fields.
Through the active work of the Foundation, Paul seeks to bring a new vision and radical change to the world of art and human culture. Several pioneering projects, including the Museum of Native American Cultures and Spirituality, the ARC Prospect Center of Spiritual Life, and The Creative Dialogue are already in the process of development.
Through this foundation, he seeks to create an effective environment for the birth of a new spiritual culture, revival of art, and purification of life for religious and non-religious people.
The foundation is a cathedral of philosophical and religious thinkers, scientists, artists and writers, and other spiritual and creative individuals. The foundation attracts and integrates selflessly dedicated people to a higher cognitive and spiritual calling with a variety of intellectual experiences and who deeply and thoroughly understand the goals and objectives of our mission.
We are engaged in deep comprehension of the essence of human being and seek purification and the spiritual transfiguration of man and the world. We strive to understand and resolve the problems of culture and science, contemporary creativity and art. All of us work for the sake of the birth of new spiritual culture. Our doors are open to secular and religious, professional and academic, artistic and scientific worldviews. We employ creativity with a variety of intellectual and spiritual experiences.
