Art as Ministry
Dominican artists seek to proclaim God’s presence through their creativity and are part of a long tradition of art as ministry going back to Fra Angelico.

Dominican Institute for the Arts

Today the Dominican Institute for the Arts is a grassroots collaboration of sisters, friars, laity, and associates of the Order of Preachers.

They are all committed to preaching through the Arts.

The collaborators are made up of painters, musicians, dancers, sculptors, and filmmakers. Many are potters, poets, actors, composers, writers, designers of sacred space, and dramatists. They also include any other art form you can imagine, as well as those who appreciate and support the arts.
