Coming Fall 2019...
Arts & Faith St. Louis Faith and the Visual Arts
Arts & Faith St. Louis and Saint Louis Art Museum (SLAM) Partnership
In 2017, Arts & Faith St. Louis began a focus on Faith and the Visual Arts. A partnership with the Saint Louis Art Museum (SLAM) was initiated to create programming using the Museum’s collection as a guide to interfaith understanding. Continuing and new fall 2019 programs include:
SLAM Interfaith Tours
New tour: Sunday, November 17, 2019 at 3 PM. This 90-minute drop-in tour is free of charge. Attendees meet at the Information Center in the Museum’s Sculpture Hall.
SLAM’s Study Room for Prints
A new Arts & Faith/SLAM collaboration involves visiting SLAM’s Study Room for Prints, Drawings, and Photographs for private viewings of faith-related art. Visitors are requested to contact the Study Room a minimum of one week in advance of the desired appointment time. For information and to schedule: 314.655.5402 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Good Shepherd Arts Center collaboration
Arts & Faith St. Louis is also collaborating with Good Shepherd Arts Center on an upcoming exhibit: “Who is my Neighbor?” High school and undergraduate students are invited to submit artwork for a juried visual art exhibit of all media. “Who Is My Neighbor?” seeks to portray the breaking down of barriers beyond race, faith, age, gender, and geography to explore what often divides us and what unites us. This is a juried show with first, second and third place honors, plus specialty awards.
All are invited to view “Who Is My Neighbor?” at GSAC, 252 S. Florissant Rd., Ferguson, MO 63135.
Opening reception is Sunday, November 24, 2019 from 2:00-4:00 PM. The exhibit runs through December 21, 2019.
This year’s concert, “Songs of Hope,” featured both adult and young singers and musicians from six faith communities – including Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist vocal ensembles from across the metropolitan area who will share their songs and music of hope. Also featured was celebrated soprano Christine Brewer, who performed new music by composer and clarinetist Stephanie Berg that was recently premiered at Powell Symphony Hall, and a specially-assembled Interfaith Youth Chorus led by Maria Ellis.
