The Catholic Artistic Imagination Series celebrates the social, communicative, and humanizing power of the arts. This series, launched in 2013, is designed to 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.The series also offers an opportunity to showcase the talents and expertise of faculty with a personal or scholarly interest in the selected subject in a relaxed, cocktail party environment. The series has featured fine art, music, dance, popular culture and socially engaged art and exhibitions.
