Fall 2018 resident artists Joey Danaher and Teresa Blackman view art as an invitation to interact with beauty and, therefore, to interact with the divine. As the capstone project of their residency, they designed and produced a magazine of art that they called The Ordinary, which showcases visual art from Catholic artists across the country.
“Art has the capacity to connect,” says Teresa. “I’ve met with so many talented artists and mentors during my residency. They’ve taught me that art gives us access to the transcendent. With The Ordinary, we uplift works of beauty so that others also connect to that divinity.”
We hope you will help us end out fiscal year on August 31 on a high. Please Step Up for Sheen with a gift of any size so we can continue making a difference by providing programming that touches and changes people’s lives.
In addition to our programs in the theaters, studios, and art gallery, we also offer opportunities to students and artists. We have an Artist in Residence program where we provide free housing at The Sheen Center to an artist for two to four months and then showcase their work with a special exhibition in our art gallery.
To continue these exciting programs, we need your help. It doesn’t take much to make an impact, gifts of many sizes will make a difference. For example:
- $50 pays for two student tickets to one of our shows
- $250 provides an honorarium for a speaker at one of our talks
- $2,000 sponsors an Artist in Residence
- $5,000 subsidizes a performance of All Our Children for underserved high school students
Your donation of any size makes a difference. Thank you!
