ArtsWatch: "Pursuing Christ, Creating Art" a must read book

If you’re looking for the next “how-to” book on doing art as a Christian, don’t read Pursuing Christ, Creating Art by Gary Molander
 
If you’re looking for a book that will challenge who you are as an artist and what you should be to create the best art you can, then devour Pursing Christ, Creating Art.

Some food is created to look like art. The art currently on display at Conrad Grebel University College (http://www.grebel.uwaterloo.ca) in Waterloo was created to make you think about food. The Just Food exhibit is on loan from the Mennonite Committee on Human Rights. This broadcast's guest is Ray Dirks, curator of the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery in Winnipeg.

ArtsWatch: Old art, modern dilemma

Last week my wife and I spent a few days in Quebec City—one of Canada’s and North America’s oldest cities. We explored Old Quebecy, exploring the upper and lower city, as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations.
 
You can’t visit Quebec City without stepping inside at least one of the dozens of churches—mostly Roman Catholic—which have a history as old as the city. We visited four—including the magnificent basilica of Ste. Anne de Beaupre, a pilgrimage shrine located about a half hour east of the city itself.

Sex, money, oil and hell are all topics in three films Abbotsford, B.C. screenwriter Kevin Miller has either worked on or is working on. These aren’t the first time he’s taken on a controversial subject: in 2008 he worked on Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed which took on science academia’s attitudes toward Christians among their midst. In this interview with Kevin we talk about  his latest projects: Hellbound?, spOILed and Sex+Money.
