Catholic Artists Society – “Art – for Whose Sake?” September 13, 2013

Here’s a message about a meeting tomorrow night in NYC that is being hosted by the Catholic Aritists Society. greg Wolfe is always worth fitting in to your schedule. Wish I could be there.


Dear friends,

Looking forward to seeing you at tomorrow night’s opening of The Art of the Beautiful lecture series, co-sponsored by the Thomistic Institute. Gregory Wolfe, author and editor of the literary journal Image, will address the question “Art – For Whose Sake?”

Mr. Wolfe, an advocate for the tradition of Christian Humanism, has been called “one of the most incisive and persuasive voices of our generation”. His books include Beauty Will Save the World, Intruding Upon the Timeless: Meditations on Art, Faith and Mystery; Malcolm Muggeridge: A Biography and Sacred Passions: The Art of William Schickel. He is the founder and director of the MFA program in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University.

The evening will begin promptly at 7.30pm. After a Q&A with Mr. Wolfe, there will be a reception with light refreshments, followed by sung Compline in the chapel, led by Father Austin Litke, OP.

The Catholic Center at NYU is located at 238 Thompson Street at Washington Square South. The nearest subway station is W. 4th Street, with A, C, D, E and F trains.

Yours in Christ,

Kevin Collins
