"Art can approach,
can give form to,
the transcendent 'otherness'
that is Christ."
Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams defines art in this new
millennium. Art, as with prayer, meditation, and work, offers us
a path toward the revelation of Christ in the world. 'Deus Revelatus', translated from the Latin, means 'God Revealed'.
As Archbishop Williams suggests, viewing art can give rise to
revelation, new perceptions leading to and becoming faith. The
mission of The Episcopal Church and Visual Arts is to
encourage artists, individuals, congregations, and scholars to
engage the visual arts in the spiritual life of the church. ECVA
supports local visual arts communities, assists churches in
visual arts integration into worship space and liturgy, and
develops forums to explore the theology of visual art.
