A reception at 6:00 p.m. will begin the evening with visual work from Kyle Ragsdale, Casey Eskridge, KC Ferrill, Sofiya Inger and Bruce Lowenthal, who were among the participants in this initiative designed to bring together people from diverse artistic disciplines, practices, and religious/spiritual perspectives for sustained study and reflection on a biblical text.

At 6:30 p.m., the program will begin with compositions and performances by Jean Arnold, Gabrielle Cerberville, Anthony Elia, Heidi Fledderjohn, Gail Payne, Wendy Vergoz, Shelly White Wood, and Roger Roe.

Twelve selected participants were part of the seminar, using sacred text to inspire new work that could include music, poetry, visual art, dance, drama, narrative, or liturgical art. The initiative is directed by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso and is a project of the Butler Center for Faith and Vocation.

The project continues in spring 2015 with new artists. They are: Von Biggs, Michael Brady, Hector Hernandez, JL Kato, Kris Mobley, Kate Oberreich, Terry Ofner, Sherry Polley, Ben Rose, Jeff Rothenberg, Gary Walters, and Michele Woods.

Faculty participants for round three will be Michael Sells, Julia Muney Moore, and Shari Wagner.
