Hors D’oeuvres Symposium Reception and Opening for Objects of Grace

David Adey, Lynn Aldrich, Lael Corbin, Summer Meritt, Gwen Pool, Duncan Simcoe, James Skalman and Patty Wickman

Information about the Symposium

This is the fifth in a series of symposiums created and hosted by the Biola University Department of Art. Over the years these events have engaged both the Biola academic community as well as the larger Southern California arts community in stimulating and thoughtful dialogs regarding contemporary art and Christain faith. Goals of the Symposia are four fold: 1) to create a compelling forum for artists to gather to discuss and think about their vocation in a contemporary context; 2) to open space for dialogue between Christians and non-Christians regarding the relationship between art and faith; 3) to foster rich cross-disciplinary discussions concerning contemporary visual culture; and 4) to positively contribute to a broader regional Christian academic discourse.

This event has always been free and open to anyone wishing to attend. However, donations and contributions of any size are highly recommended to help defray expenses.

Speakers books and other significant books dealing with the arts and faith are provided courtesy of the Biola University Bookstore.

Biola University is located at 13800 Biola Avenue, La Mirada, California 90639. For further information call (562) 903-4807.
