The Word in Color, Action, Music, and Form

REFORMATION COMMEMORATION 1517 – 2017

The Arts and Ecumenism: What Theology Risks in Artistic Creation

What:

Among the contexts of Christian experience open to the arts and music, today as in the past, monastic life has particular importance, its contemplative dimension predisposing the free creative act in which the Holy Spirit is present.

The final session of our symposium thus unfolds in an ecumenical monastery in the Benedictine tradition, the Community of Jesus, known for its commitment to sacred music and art. The session combines academic papers with examples of contemporary artistic production and musical performance, within the typically monastic framework of solemn liturgical celebration.

At the Community of Jesus’s monastery there is a second edition of the collaborative ecumenical exhibition inaugurated in the month of May in Florence, with works by Susan Kanaga, American and Protestant (a member of the Community of Jesus), and by Filippo Rossi, Italian and Roman Catholic

Where:

Monastery and Church of the Transfiguration
Community of Jesus
5 Bay View Drive
Orleans, Massachusetts 02653

When:

October 27, 28, 29

Sacred Arts in North American Contexts

REFORMATION COMMEMORATION 1517 – 2017

The Arts and Ecumenism: What Theology Risks in Artistic Creation

What:

The myriad array of religious traditions in North America has given rise to an equally diverse range of artistic expressions. These are informed by practices shaped by individuals and communities past and present, often calling notions of normativity, canon, and authority into question. This Yale session of our symposium lays out a series of case studies that demonstrate a range of these practices, both within and without specific liturgical contexts.

November Webinar – The Creation of a Devotional Space

Creating a prayerful devotional space introduces some interesting challenges beyond the creation of the artwork itself. This webinar will take attendees on the journey from initial glass sculpture concepts, through the introduction of the idea to transform an existing passageway into devotional space for prayer; building a scale model of the architectural space; developing the carved glass triptych design; votive candle holders; devotional bench design; wall coloration; floor treatment, and designing the supports to cantilever the 1000 lb. glass triptych off the wall in an area with seismic concerns.

Wing is a liturgical artist and designer working nationally in leaded glass and sand-carved glass relief sculpture, as well as the design of devotional spaces, liturgical items, and ritual furnishings.
