Exhibit description from civa.org:
“As those who bear the image of God, we possess powerful agency in the world–the ability to invent, create, and make. It is well-known that artists routinely call on these skills and abilities, but so also do inventors, business people, and entrepreneurs. True work invites us into relationship with God, creation, and each other. This is work which dignifies humanity, is integral to our worship of God and an opportunity to employ head and hands to make good[s] that benefit creation and encourage community.
In partnership with CIVA artists, Asbury Seminary’s Office of Faith, Work, and Economics has curated an exhibit, with special attention focused on entrepreneurship. This exhibit puts forward a vision whereby work and art are understood as activities that involve the making of goods as well as contributing to the common good. It advances the conviction that business and art can reflect God’s creative character and, in doing so, invite others to be about the task of creating goods and services that are both artful and useful as a means of generating positive social change.”
