    Catholic Artistic Imagination

    We are pleased to offer this series of informal receptions exploring the idea of Catholic artistic imagination. Our aims are to:

    • foster a broad and inclusive understanding of Catholic intellectual tradition
    • promote collegiality and collaboration across divisional and disciplinary boundaries
    • create conditions in which cross-disciplinary scholarship may emerge
    • showcase the artistic and intellectual expertise and gifts of Duquesne faculty, graduate students and staff
      share beautiful works of art with interesting people

    Our receptions are open to faculty, staff and graduate students. In future years, we hope to explore different artistic mediums, including music, literature, and the performing arts. Already our efforts this year are sparking complementary initiatives on campus and promoting awareness of collaborative opportunities. Suggestions and feedback are most welcome.

    Music therapy is a 60 year old profession with principles of practice founded in human experiences of music. Dr. Elaine Abbott will share her expertise in an informal and experiential format. You will learn about music therapy as a profession and, by listening to music together, appreciate how its principles operate. As usual we will enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in a relaxed and collegial setting. Attendance is open to all faculty, staff, and graduate students.
