Artwork by Lia Chavez

This is the eighth 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 Christian 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

  4. To positively contribute to a broader regional Christian academic discourse

This event is FREE and open to anyone wishing to attend.

Books by our speakers and other books dealing with the arts and faith are provided courtesy of the Biola University Bookstore.
