    Catholic Artistic Imagination

    We are pleased to offer this series of informal receptions exploring the idea of Catholic artistic imagination. Our aims are to:

    • foster a broad and inclusive understanding of Catholic intellectual tradition
    • chip away at the divisional and disciplinary boundaries that inhibit collegiality and collaboration
    • create conditions in which cross-disciplinary scholarship may emerge
    • showcase the artistic and intellectual expertise and gifts of Duquesne faculty, graduate students and staff
      share beautiful works of art with interesting people

    Our receptions are open to faculty, staff and graduate students. In future years, we hope to explore different artistic mediums, including music, literature, and the performing arts. Already our efforts this year are sparking complementary initiatives on campus and promoting awareness of collaborative opportunities. Suggestions and feedback are most welcome.
