Lecture by Dr. Elizabeth Lev
Organization: Saint Vincent College
Description: “Catholic Art of the Modern Age: New Images for an Ancient Story” is the title of a lecture to be given by Dr. Elizabeth Lev at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, in the Fred M. Rogers Center. Admission is free and open to the public, but reservations are required: 724-805-2177.
The lecture is presented in conjunction with the “Seventh Juried Catholic Arts Exhibition” and will examine the perennial themes of Catholic art. Lev notes, “The works of the Catholic Arts Exhibition demonstrate that art can still persuasively communicate ancient truths to the modern Church through the exploration of critical contemporary themes such as fatherhood, universality and religious persecution.”
The exhibition opening reception and prize award ceremony follow the lecture in The Saint Vincent Gallery from 3:30 to 6 p.m. with the exhibition continuing through Sunday, Dec. 2. The Saint Vincent Gallery is located on the third floor of the Robert S. Carey Student Center. Gallery hours are from 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and by special appointment. The Gallery is closed on Mondays and November 21-26 for Thanksgiving.
