Episcopal Church and Visual Arts announces that C. Robin Janning will be Editor in Chief for the ECVA blog Image & Spirit. Image & Spirit is an inspired assemblage of images and words, aiming to carry the breath of Spirit far and wide. Contributors are artists and writers, priests and poets, and all who live in range of those intersections of art and faith.
From the ECVA website:
The mission of The Episcopal Church and Visual Arts (ECVA) is to encourage artists, individuals, congregations, and scholars to engage the visual arts in the spiritual life of the church. ECVA values the significance of visual imagery in spiritual formation and the development of faith, and creates programs to support those who are engaged in using the visual arts in spiritual life.
The Episcopal Church and Visual Arts (ECVA) strives to encourage
… visual artists in our church to use their creative gifts for the glory of God.
… individuals to explore the opportunities visual arts offer in their spiritual journeys.
… parishes and cathedrals to incorporate visual arts in their total programs.
… conversations and research in issues related to the visual arts, theology and culture.
