A series of talks on art and beauty aims to bring a Catholic understanding of the arts into the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village.
The Catholic Center at New York University is hosting the Saturday lecture series "The Art of the Beautiful" with the aim of exploring the "nature and purpose" of art and beauty and "their place in the social order."
It aims to reach professional artists in all disciplines, students and patrons of the arts, and all those interested in culture and art, the Catholic Artists' Society of New York City said on its website.
The series' sponsors include the Catholic Artists Society and the Washington, D.C.-based Thomistic Institute at the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, a Dominican institution.
