Bruce Herman
Bruce Herman will work on a commission for a large painting in the York Room on the resurrection of Jesus.

Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) welcomes its second artist-in-residence, Bruce Herman. Herman, a painter and Lothlórien Distinguished Chair in Fine Arts at Gordon College in Wenham, Mass., has exhibited widely in North America and Europe. He will be at Duke March 1-10 and March 28-30.

Herman took part in the Divinity School's 2013 "Engaging Eliot" event on T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets, which included an exhibition of paintings by Herman and artist Makoto Fujimura. Watch video of Herman speaking at the event »

While in residence, Herman will work on a commission for a large painting in the York Room on the resurrection of Jesus. The commission, which will be unveiled on March 30, has been made possible through the generosity of Walter and Darlene Hansen. Herman will also speak in classes and deliver a public lecture.

DITA's first artist-in-residence was Malcolm Guite, who delivered lectures, preached, and performed in the Dean’s Songwriters Series in the fall of 2014.
