Reflect on Vocation and Art in a Dynamic Urban Center
In this immersion experience, the streets and public spaces of New York City itself become a classroom for theological learning as you experience art and dialogue with working artists. Through interaction with both the national and international arts culture, you will have a unique opportunity to reflect upon your own work, theology, and aesthetics, and to locate yourself in the larger arts conversation outside the walls of the seminary.
The center of the NYC immersion is the week of classroom and experiential learning in New York. Those taking the course for credit will begin the readings and online discussions two or three weeks before arriving in NYC. In New York, students live together at Hephzibah House on the Upper West Side just off of Central Park. You’ll further explore the topics covered in class by visiting galleries, parks, and museums, navigating the various neighborhoods and enclaves of the city. While evenings are generally free time, expect to see one show as part of the course.
