THE STILL POINT COLLOQUY
“Art seems to me to be a state of soul more than anything else.”
The Still Point Colloquy is an annual, intimate gathering of creative voices for a rich engagement of theological questions. With artist Marc Chagall as visual guide and conversation partner this year, we will explore the makings of a sacred imagination and the invitation of Christ to inhabit the world we live in, the speech we speak, the vision we see.
For Marc Chagall, this world was filled with reoccurring symbols of his own childhood fantasy, Jewish heritage, and the biblical stories he so loved. It was an imagination that embodied a hope that carried him through World War, personal loss, and the horrific suffering of the Jewish people.
Mark the season of Pentecost and the promise of new creation as we traverse the sacred terrain of the imagination with thoughtful lectures from our global team—Margaret Manning Shull, Mari Ovsepyan, Derek Caldwell, Jo Vitale, Lowe Finney, and Jill Carattini. Limited spaces available due to the small and intimate nature of this gathering. Registration ($65) required. Visit stillpointarts.org for more details.
Registration ($65) includes lunch and refreshments. This day-long event takes place in the gallery surrounded by the works of Marc Chagall from Still Point’s current exhibit: Marc Chagall and the Sacred. Topics will engage the liturgical season and a diverse imaginative terrain.
