“Faith is not to have perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true.” Alma 32:21
The College of Fine Arts and Communications Faith and Works lectures are presented by faculty from Art, Communications, Dance, Design, Music, and Theatre and Media Arts. The lectures/demonstrations focus on the ways that a faculty member’s faith and creative work or intellectual pursuits intersect and inform each other. The lectures describe journeys of faith within a disciplinary context.
Faculty presenters are charged with demonstrating how artists and scholars can productively wrestle with big disciplinary questions in ways that exhibit mastery and rigor within their disciplines while also exploring, respecting, and fostering faith. Lecturers also share creative or theoretical projects and work processes that grew out of spiritual issues, devotional inspiration, or gospel questions.
Our hope is that through these lectures and the accompanying question and answer sessions faculty and students can grapple in faith engaging ways with big disciplinary questions.
