Thursday, January 7, 2010

Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their immediate families are invited to submit visual art for the 2nd Annual Duke Divinity School Juried Arts Exhibit, which will be on display March 22 through May 2.

The 2010 exhibit’s theme is “The End of Words,” based on the book, “The End of Words: The Language of Reconciliation in a Culture of Violence,” by Richard Lischer, James T. and Alice Mead Cleland Professor of Preaching at Duke Divinity School. The theme may be interpreted broadly in a variety of media to engage issues including Christian unity, social justice, creation care, gender, race, and inter-religious dialogue.

New work is encouraged, but previous work also may be submitted. First, second, and third place entries will be awarded $200, $100, and $50 (respectively) in gift cards to the arts retailer/supplier of their choice.

The deadline for submitting entries is March 16-18. Selected artwork will be displayed outside Cokesbury bookstore, the student lounge, and the Divinity Student Council office. There also will be a reception for the artists in the spring.

The New Creation Arts Group, a student group of the Divinity Student Council, is sponsoring the exhibit.
