Recent Exhibits and Events
Our 2011 Juried Arts Exhibit featured submissions from a variety of students, staff and family based on the theme "Places of Redemption," taken from the book of the same name by Mary McClintock Fulkerson.
For the fall/winter of 2010, 2011 the work of two students was on display. Tom Lewis (Middler M.Div.) works in a unique medium—Post-It Notes!—and first-year Justin Hubbard spent time in the Congo and has offered photos from his experience on display. See the video below for a preview of some of Tom's art.
On October 7, 2010, the usual thrice-weekly community worship service in Goodson Chapel at Duke Divinity School took on a slightly different character. Led by the Gospel Choir and the Praise Team, we participated in A Service of Praise, Music, and the Arts. Also ministering during that time was the liturgical dance group and Katherine Hester, a visual artist, who painted throughout the service. It was an incredibly spirit-filled time and a witness to the passion for theology and the arts that is present at Duke Divinity (note that the Chaplain's Office and the musical ensembles, not New Creation, were the driving forces behind making this service happen!). Here are a series of photos taken by Brian Bryant and posted by Dewey Williams (whose camera Brian was using since Dewey is in the Gospel Choir). The song used in this video is "He Wants It All" by Forever Jones, a selection the liturgical dancers used.
The 2010 "Images from the Field" Field Ed Photo Exhibit was on display in the Divinity School from September to November 2010. It included photos taken by students in field education experiences from as close by as Durham to as far away as South Africa, and everywhere in between. See the video below to get a glimpse into the exhibit.

We desire to encourage the creative use of and theological engagement with artistic talent in churches and their surrounding communities.

This is a place for dreamers and thinkers alike, unified in a love of beauty as a reflection of God's redemptive work in the world.
