Call for Artists: Bodies of Christ: Visualizing Jesus Then and Now

Edward Blum 

From June 12-24, 2016, historians, religious studies scholars, artists, theologians, and pastors will meet in Grand Rapids, Michigan, at Calvin College to discuss “Bodies of Christ: Visualizing Jesus Then and Now.” (applications for the seminar are due by February 15).

As part of the seminar, special guests will join the group to discuss their work, insights, ideas, and artwork. When I participated in a Calvin seminar on Religion and War, for instance, Jonathan H. Ebel (author of Faith in the Fight: Religion and the American Soldier in the Great War and G.I. Messiahs: Soldiering, War, and American Civil Religion) shared some of his research and was a highlight of our time. We are looking for individuals in the visual arts who would consider spending one or two days to share their paintings or sculptures or websites or anything else. Travel expenses, housing, and an honorarium will be provided.
