PRESENCE—Illuminating Black History, Faith, and Culture

Fri 09.17.21 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CDT

  • This event has passed.

Steve Prince, printmaker, sculptor, and educator, joins us for an illuminating lunch-time presentation at Upper House.

In his art and speaking, Prince honors the beauty of humanity, the dynamism of culture, the living text of Scripture, and the realities of economic inequity and racism. His particular dramatic interest is to portray the vibrancy of Black faith, history, and culture. Steve declares, ‘We are all living epistles, whether we want to be or not’ (Image Journal), and it is his Christian faith that calls him to be an artist and explore the dynamic intersections of his life, culture, and community. One New Orleans based art critic described Prince’s work as “startling in its ability to elucidate inexplicable worlds within worlds.”

Event Type

In-Person with Online Option. (The week before the event, we will email you to learn if you plan to attend in-person or online.)
