Finding Go(o)d in All Art
Wednesday November 12, 6-8pm in the Den
This event stems from the Jesuit value of “Finding God in All Things” or finding the good in all things. The intent of this gallery is to allow students to explore how and where they may find God (or good) and translate that into their art. While preparing their artwork, students may keep in mind how it is they find God (or good) in their lives and artwork. For example, a student may find God (or good) in their future profession or major and may find a way to encompass that in their artwork. This event is sponsored by the Interfaith Advocates, Campus Ministry, and Ignatian Heritage Month.
Acceptable submissions can be done in the following mediums:
- Graphic Design
If you are looking to submit a piece of art in a medium other than these, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. However, if your artwork is not one of these mediums, we cannot guarantee that it will be displayed at the event.
- Only one submission per person will be accepted.
- Any Loyola University of Chicago student is eligible to submit.
- Artwork should be no larger than 18” x 24” and should not be framed as it will be presented on easels because we are unable to hang artwork in the Den.
