You may have been by to see UD Regional Ceramics "Best of Show" winner Ariel Bowman’s exhibit "A Magnificent Migration" in the Thompson Loggia of the Art History Building. The closing reception for this exhibit will be Friday, Feb. 19, 6:30-8:30 p.m. If you haven’t seen it yet, stop by!
David W. Fagerberg, Ph.D., professor and author, will deliver the University of Dallas School of Ministry’s 17th annual Landregan Lecture on "A Daughter of Asceticism: Liturgical Glorification of God." The event, which will be held Saturday, Feb. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the Church of the Incarnation, is free and open to the public. Fagerberg will discuss how liturgy has many benefits but only two purposes: to glorify God and sanctify human beings. The lecture will seek to understand how everything within the liturgy, even the sanctification of man, is oriented toward the glorification of God.
Also, through April 22, UD’s Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is hosting “Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions.” You don’t have to make it by this week, but you will certainly want to make time to see it at some point while it’s here!
