The Office of the Chaplain at Duke Divinity School will sponsor a brown bag lunch seminar with Susan Pendleton Jones on the works of art that were commissioned for the Westbrook Building. The art is the basis of the book, "With God in Mind: Sermons on the Art and Architecture of Duke Divinity School."

Jones, director of the Office of Field Education, will show slides on various works in the school's permanent collection and discuss the mediums and artists’ inspirations for the pieces at the public seminar.

The full-color, 150-page book published in 2008 celebrates the sermons, art, and, architecture inspired by the 2005 addition of the Westbrook Building to the Divinity School, which was coordinated by Jones. The book invites readers to join the conversation between art and theology.
