Theological center in Atlanta welcomes artist Gilbert Young as artist-in-residence

"We Shall Gather at the River" (1992) by Gilbert Young
ATLANTA, Ga---The International Theological Center's Gilbert Young Artist-in-Residence Program (ITC/GY) is a new venture for ITC. The artist’s presence on campus, and proposed arts and cultural projects are designed to be a component of ITC’s religion and arts program and expand its engagement with the surrounding community. The plan is to develop innovative, unique programming that will expose students of all ages, and the community at-large, to fine African American art in an intimate studio/gallery setting on the ITC campus. ITC believes this program can expand the awareness and use of visual arts by our students and graduates in worship and ministry contexts. Gilbert Young is a nationally renowned artist, muralist, and art conservator. Born and raised in Cincinnati Ohio. [More]
