Visiting Associate Professor of Religious Studies S. Brent Plate recently took part in a roundtable discussion on the place of religion in contemporary art. Joining Plate were several NYC-based artists working in a variety of media. They included Lawrence Graham-Brown, Meg Hitchcock-Steger, Yona Verwer, Kysa Johnson and Patricia Bellucci.
The meeting was organized by the Society for the Arts, Religion, and Contemporary Culture. SARCC was founded in 1961 by Alfred Barr (founder of the Museum of Modern Art), Paul Tillich (Protestant theologian), and Marvin Halverson (theologian).
