Introducing: Art in the Christian Church - From the Catacombs to Cathedrals and Beyond Lecture Series for weekend seminars, retreats and conference/workshop presentations.

Philosophy/Approach:
Our rich heritage of art, architecture and liturgy produces multi-use approaches when applying art/themes. The forms and surfaces of a painted mural, etched glass, stained glass, mosaic tile, wood relief, bronze sculpture can be executed according to approved specifications. Based on USCCB's Built of Living Stones document, architect/interior design and client vision for the space, several concepts are explored to one final design for production. Whether new construction or remodel, the liturgical art or furnishing decor commissioned, must be integrated into its environment and not an applied afterthought.

Qualifications:
