The Catholic Vision of Carl Schmitt – American Artist
October 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDTFree
The first lecture of the Catholic Artists Society’s 2018-2019 series: Samuel Schmitt presents “The Catholic Vision of Carl Schmitt, American Artist.”
The vision of American artist Carl Schmitt (1889-1989) embraced the breadth of the Catholic tradition in its mystical, sacramental, historical, and ascetical dimensions, relating these to the seven fine arts and to the life of the artist himself. Rather than vehicles of self-expression or moral instruction, he saw the fine arts as an image of reality in its fullness, which reality is itself an image of the Triune God. Come join artists of all disciplines, patrons and friends of the arts for this popular series. Reception and sung Compline will follow.
