Cathedrals, parishes, summer camps, and pubs all host events that engage the visual arts in dialogues of faith.

The Episcopal Diocese of California , San Francisco, CA
The Right Reverend Marc Handley Andrus, Bishop
Julia McCray-Goldsmith, Director of Faith Formation

The Diocese of California's annual ministries and visioning conference integrated visual arts into this year's formation activities. The Department of Faith Formation partnered with the Visio Divina program to create a community response to the Keiskamma Altarpiece, one that would include a contribution from every person attending the visioning conference.

"The Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields undertook a Year of the Artist two years ago. A small group of artists worked with the parish Christian Formation Committee to sponsor a Lenten forum series. They gathered artists in the parish to share their work and talk about the connections between their art and their faith."
