Faith in Arts is a new series developed in collaboration with Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC), available exclusively through Atelier Éditions and the Museum.
In collaboration with Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center, Atelier Éditions has authored an ongoing, ever-evolving series of experimental chapbooks which explore the assorted concepts, thoughts, theologies and dialogues examined within the museum’s Faith in Arts project.
Faith in Arts is BMCM+AC’s multiple public dialogues, experiments, installations, and interviews examining art, spiritual practices and faith’s longstanding engagement with one another. Each conversation begins with an open-ended question: what does faith in arts mean to you?
