July - Commissioned Installation and Events

You may remember I gave a guest sermon at this church last year on the topic of art and faith. I have been invited back as the church's featured Artist of the Month in July to exhibit several of my 2-D works, as well as create a temporary, site-specific installation! There will be several accompanying events you won't want to miss:
A note to my non-churchgoing friends: I want you to feel comfortable to come even if you are not necessarily comfortable with the idea of church in general. I wholeheartedly endorse this church as a safe place for deep thinking and questioning. It is a smart, progressive congregation with many great things going on. It's known for its radical hospitality, inclusivity, and a history of supporting the arts, and ALL are welcome.
- Artist Talk and Reception: Sunday 7/20, following the 10:30am service.
- Forum on Contemporary Issues of Art and Faith: Thursday 7/24, 7-9 p.m. - This will a presentation and a space for deep and earnest discussion about contemporary issues concerning the meeting of art and faith, and how we might continue to help reconcile the two. Bring an open mind and your thinking caps!
- Contemplative Service: Saturday 7/26, 6-7 p.m. - I will be leading a meditation/contemplation service facilitated by my work. I invite you to come out and try experiencing the Divine in a new way!
