Faith In Art
3rd Annual Faith In Art Event
Faith In Art is an annual event put on by the Interfaith Council to allow religious groups, as well as individuals, showcase their faith through a form of art. This year Faith in Art had eight performances from a variety of not only student organizations but art forms. The acts included Christian-based performances: Voices of Praise (which illustrated their faith through miming), Victory Acapella (which illustrated their faith through singing), and a student singing gospels while playing the piano; Hindu-based performances: group of 3 girls doing a dance, an individual girl doing a dance, and a student playing religious melodies with his flute; Muslim-based performances: a student singing Islamic related songs; and lastly we had a student who performed spoken word about religion. Following the performances, the participants and audience enjoyed breaking bread together in the form of a buffet with food catered from Maggiano’s.
Along with the performances, students are exposed to a different side of the Vanderbilt campus and are introduced to one another. Interfaith Council encouraged dialogue between the groups and provided an avenue of understanding for one another. Vanderbilt is creating a community of tolerance and understanding by allowing students to express their religion in a unique way through Faith In Art.
