Catholic Artistic Imagination

Beautiful art. Interesting conversation.
That's the recipe for Catholic Artistic Imagination events.
Join us.

The Catholic Artistic Imagination Series celebrates the social, communicative, and humanizing power of the arts. This series, now in its fifth year, was designed explore the idea of Catholic artistic imagination through appreciation of art that is informed by Catholic faith as well as by reflection on other art from a Catholic perspective. 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 first event for 2017 is a campus excursion to the Society for Contemporary Craft in the Strip District to view artistic expressions of how safe and secure shelter--or lack of it--impacts people around the world.
