Artists of faith, and especially GLBT artists of color have been marginalized in the world of contemporary art, so we decided to do our part to promote their work and influence. My name is Gregory Disney-Britton, and welcome to the Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts. The project is dedicated to promoting artists exploring religious ideas, and especially artists of color and LGBT artists. Ernest and I started this project in 2008 when we were living in New York City and following the religious trail of Kehinde Wiley.
