Wednesday, May 1, 7 p.m. (Update–Dinner will no longer be served.)
This lecture will survey some artists from the modern era that will help remove the stigma that modern art has borne among the public. It will perhaps offer a means to rebuild a theological approach to culture with modern art at its center.
