If it Ain't Baroque, Don't Fix it

Sorry... I just couldn't resist.

Here is an announcement for an event coming up from the Magis Institute, of which I am a Board member. Our mission is "Healing the Culture Through Spirituality," and we will be holding a lot of retreats and conferences and one-off events, particularly to deepen Catholic artists in the entertainment industry. Eric Hansen, the speaker for this event, knows more about sacred art than any body I have ever come across. I always learn from him.
