The College of Fine Arts and Communications will continue its mission to “teach the disciplines of art, communications, dance, design, music and theatre and media arts … expand their civilizing influence on the human spirit” with another year of the Faith and Works Lecture Series. The 2019-2020 season will begin with a lecture from School of Music professor Alexander Woods on Nov. 7. Recognized for his accomplishments on the violin, Woods has studied with many of the world’s greatest musicians and has a passion for sharing his knowledge with students aspiring to build a career in the arts. Woods and the other Faith + Works speakers will present 35-minute lectures followed by a 15-minute question and answer session aimed to inspire students within the college. Faith and Works is an opportunity for faculty members to share their journey of faith within their discipline. “Lecturers are charged to share creative or scholarly projects and work processes that grow out of spiritual issues, devotional inspiration or gospel questions,” said associate dean Amy Petersen Jensen. “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.” The Faith + Works Lecture Series will take place on the first Thursdays in November, December, February, March and April during the 2019-2020 academic year. Faith + Works 2019-2020 Season: Alexander Woods | School of Music Madsen Recital Hall Nov. 7 | 11:00 a.m. Fidalis Buehler | Department of Art Madsen Recital Hall Dec. 5 | 11:00 a.m. Scott Christopherson | Department of Theatre and Media Arts Madsen Recital Hall Feb. 6 | 11:00 a.m. Diane Reich | School of Music Madsen Recital Hall Mar. 5 | 11:00 a.m. David Habben | Department of Design Madsen Recital Hall Apr. 2 | 11:00 a.m
