My name is Gregory Disney-Britton, and welcome to the Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts. Ernest and I started this project in 2008 when we were living in New York City. Today, our project includes an art news website, e-newsletter, summer tours, and an annual artist prize. Our mission is "Collecting Religion.”
