ARTS IN THE COMMUNITY

Art, faith and justice intersect

We return from the playful sabbatical summer refreshed and ready to resume our mission of teaching.

The Department of Performing Arts has given this awesome task an artful twist, and with UWM’s Peck School of the Arts and Alverno College launched a year-long, city-wide festival and academic conference designed to engage students and the community in an exploration of art, faith and social justice.

Festival literature explains that “art is a form of prayer” and invites all to participate as “artists explore identity, examine individual and collective respon-sibility, seek transcendence, and strive to create a legacy that can help us heal the world.” The national conference will be held at Marquette Nov. 10–12.

Accordingly, our Department of Performing Arts has planned a subscription series certain to provide abundant opportunities for the exploration of faith and justice through art with these student productions:

Everyman (Oct. 6–16, 2005)

The Trial of the Catonsville Nine (Nov. 10–20, 2005)
Special visit by author Rev. Daniel Berrigan, S.J.

Tartuffe (Feb. 16–26)

Blood Brothers (March 30 to April 19)
