Engaging Contemporary Prophetic Art: Posters for Hope, Peace, and Social Justice                                                                                             

with Artist, John August Swanson

Throughout church history, art has not only expressed Christian prayer but also embodied prophetic response to injustice. This artistic vision is beautifully expressed in the work of John August Swanson. For the last five years Swanson has been working out this vision in his posters on Peace and Social Justice, painting messages for justice, civil rights, hunger, poverty, and peace.   Come and learn from Swanson and view more than 40 of his posters on Peace and Social Justice.  In partnership with Calvin College, this seminar will be held at the Catholic Information Center.
