The mission of the Henry Luce III Center for the Arts and Religion is to explore the intersection of art and faith; to encourage dialogue between artists and theologians; to help artists find ways to join their faith and their art; to help local churches discover ways to include the arts as a medium of transformation and hope; and to remind the Church Universal that the arts are intrinsic to the full expression of what it means to be created in the image of God.
In practice, this takes the form of exhibitions and gallery talks in the Dadian Gallery; support for Artists-in-Residence through studio space, housing, and small stipends for periods ranging from a few weeks to a full academic year; provision of a model for the incorporation of liturgical dance, chancel drama, and other artistic forms in worship services; and the offering of lectures, dramatic productions, concerts and other events to anyone who wants to attend.
The Center for the Arts and Religion at Wesley bears the name of Henry Luce III, whose generous gift furnished the seed money for the creation of the Luce Center. Your gifts provide the funds needed to build on Mr. Luce’s legacy and provide ongoing support for our programs.
Please prayerfully consider a gift to support the ongoing work of creating a place where art and faith can transform the church and the world.
