Come alongside us for a series of monthly conversations at the intersection of faith and the humanities. Each month, someone specializing in an academic discipline will come and share from their field, and we’re excited to learn together how the humanities help us see truth, goodness, & beauty in God’s world.
Faith and Humanities Conversation Series continuing January 21st from 6:30 – 8:00pm
Deep inside, we know there’s something essential and basic that connects us. And yet we’re all too aware of the dangers that come when we over-identify with things that only connect some of us, whether nationality, politics, and even religion. How do we embrace our connectedness to each other while also remaining fully ourselves? And how do we follow Jesus while holding these two things together?
Come alongside accomplished painter Bruce Herman as we explore how art helps us understand our identity. By choosing “voluntary exile” as Herman suggests, we don’t just find ourselves separate from the world around us; we actually become free to connect more widely, even when they don’t match up with our own identities.
Mark your calendars for January 21st! No registration necessary.
Bruce Herman’s art has been exhibited in Boston, New York, Los Angeles and most major cities in the U.S.A. and abroad in Italy, England, Israel, Japan, and Hong Kong. Herman’s art is in many public and private art collections––among these, the Vatican Museums in Rome, Cincinnati Museum of Fine Arts, and Hammer Museum Grunewald Print Collection in L.A. Herman’s art and writings are published in a thirty-year retrospective in Through Your Eyes. His published essays are found in many print and online journals including IMAGE, Comment, Books and Culture, and many others.
Herman was a college art professor for nearly four decades and curated over 100 exhibitions for Gordon College. He still holds the Lothlórien Distinguished Chair in Fine Arts at the school and is Gallery Director and Art Collection manager there.
