INFLAMED BY FAITH: Bishop Will Willimon
Carlo Dolci and the Everyday Sacred
Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Carlo Dolci considered his painting to be a devotional exercise, praying with each brush stroke. He would often write a prayer on the back of a canvas, hidden in the framing. Dolci has been described as an artist "inflamed by faith." Join Bishop Will Willimon, a bishop in the United Methodist Church who served as dean of Duke Chapel and professor of Christian ministry at Duke for 20 years, who will give a talk in the galleries about finding the sacred in the everyday, as well as historical and personal examples of being driven or motivated by faith, especially to express devotion through creative means.
