The third in our webinar series on pilgrimage, “Sacred Art and the Journey toward Justice" considered iconography and visio divina as aesthetic practices, like pilgrimage, that facilitate encounters with the divine and with the beloved neighbor. Artist Kelly Latimore joined Professor Ricky Klee (Notre Dame Initiative on Race and Resilience) in conversation about the influence of medieval iconographic traditions on his work and the importance of Black-Brown iconography in the Christian tradition. In whose face do we see God? And how can aesthetic practices move us forward in our journey toward racial justice and healing? Sponsored by the Medieval Institute and the Program of Liberal Studies.
This webinar is part of a series of spring-semester events exploring the practice of pilgrimage, both historically across faith traditions and in present-day work for social justice.
