ART AND THE CARE OF CULTURE
by Makoto Fujimura

Phillips Hall Auditorium

*****************************************

Just as we are learning to care for and carefully steward our natural resources for the next generation, we must also learn to care for the cultural soil in which art and the humanities take root.


Internationally known artist Makoto Fujimura will discuss these “culture care” values, show slides of his recent art projects, and discuss the International Arts Movement which he founded over 20 years ago to “wrestle deeply with issues of art, faith, and humanity.”

*****************************************
