ARTS AT CALVIN

 

MAKE THINGS NEW

When words become tired, when issues become divisive, when community falls apart, art has the potential to step in and revive, reconnect and restore that which is broken. At Calvin, we take the power of the arts very seriously, using our poems, paintings, films and arias to renew God's creation.

 

PROVOKE ACTION

Can art make a city a better place to live? Can it free the oppressed? Can art really do something? The arts at Calvin are infused with the idea that creative work is meant to serve God and others by questioning the status quo, challenging injustices and actively working to make the world more like God intended it to be.

 

REVEL IN BEAUTY

Great creative work engages you on a level that draws you to a deeper place—a place of emotion, intuition and even love.

Through vibrant offerings in the arts—popular music concerts, films, festivals and more—Calvin invites you to engage culture in a way that goes beyond entertainment. You'll examine your responses to the music, paintings, films, poetry and dance performances you take in: Why do you love it? Why don't you love it? How is the work of art challenging you to change your thinking or behavior?
