Join Us for A Night of Beauty: Artists from NYU, FIT, and SVA Share Their Art and Their Faith

Come join us for a night of beauty, written and performed by real women expressing a real time in their lives when we thirsted for more than what the world had to offer.

We took off in a different direction and happened upon someone far greater than ourselves. Like the woman at the well (John 4:1-26), we want to share, through our different art forms, why we have chosen living water.

We began as a group of artists, from NYU, FIT, and SVA, who gathered together to grow in their faith through a FOCUS bible study.

We meet every Wednesday night to study Saint John Paul II’s Letter to Artists. His words have inspired us. We are accepting his challenge.

The evening will feature theatre, dance, music, photography, sign language, fashion design, film, and poetry.
