Pretending you are writing an editorial piece for a Christian magazine, write a 3 page essay discussing the evolution of Christian art and artists from the early church to the 21st century. While this will be a broad approach to this subject – select 2-3 important ideas that you think best communicate these shifts. You may use first person narrative voice in this paper, however, this paper is not to be based on opinion – but on well researched ideas, themes, and data. Use examples wherever you can and be sure you consider the “why” and the “how,” of these issues.
Is Christian art today in a “good” place? Why or why not?
Are there any cultural shifts that have contributed to how we view Christian art differently today?
