In this presentation, architects, liturgical consultants and artists will learn about a collaborative process of theological reflection which they can use with their clients to discern meaningful images for the creation of Sacred and Liturgical art. Participants will engage in a brief example of the process. Using stories and illustrations the presenter will also communicate the benefits of community created art, its various forms and uses, and suggest the value of including rigging systems in new and remodeled building projects.
1. To learn about a collaborative method of Liturgical art planning that draws meaningful images and themes from the members of a faith community.
2. To explore various applications of liturgical art, both permanent and temporary, their various challenges, and instances when architects and consultants might want to suggest one or both to their clients.
3. To encourage architects to include rigging systems in new construction or remodeling projects.
4. To make note of my service of creating custom programs for use with faith communities, as well as my availability to facilitate them.
