About this title


Accompany printer and textile artist Nancy Chinn in a wide-ranging and vigorous discussion about the use of visual arts in the worship evironment. How have visual arts been used in Christian tradition? What are some of the hesitations and fears that artists and the church have about each other? How might an artist at the dawn of a new century create new art for the church? What does art have to do with social change?

In addition to exploring thses profound questions, Spaces for Spirit will help parish artists find new insight in the basic elements of design: light/dark, transparency/opacity, color, pattern, texture, scale and movement. Numerous case studies of actual parish art projects for study and critique are provided. You also will learn how to organize the work of artists in the church and how to use the exemplary medium of paper lace to create visual art for your worship space.

With dozens of beautiful photographs (over 64 in full color), this book will challenge any community to appreciate the importanct role that visual arts play in the worship environment and encourage all of us to make our offerings of praise and thanksgiving to the Creator in places that have spaces for spirit.


From April 2000 to September 2003,...the archdioceses of Los Angeles...formulated pastoral initiatives, priorities and strategies which culminated in these documents. -- Theology Digest, Vol. 51, No. 3, Fall 2004, Heiser
