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.

ArtsWatch: Art exhibit a feast for the eyes, mind

ArtsWatch: Art exhibit a feast for the eyes, mind

Some food is created to look like art. The art on display at Conrad Grebel University College was created to make you think about food.
I mentioned the Just Food exhibit a couple of weeks ago and had a chance to go and see it today. And the images are certainly thought provoking. The one posted is titled "Food is a Human Right" by Bert Monterona, an artist from the Philippines.
