BISMARCK, ND - The annual Artists Celebrating Christ (ACC) is a unique inter-denominational event uniting Christian artisans from across the nation at the University of Mary. It's an opportunity to exhibit all forms of Christian art in a supportive atmosphere that inspires creativity and revives the use of the arts to enhance the worship experience.
This year's ACC eventis April 4 - 7, 2013, in the Benedictine Center for Servant Leadership building and the ajoining Gary Tharaldson School of Business building.
Highlights of the weekend include: a juried art show from artists across the nation; student art entries; a church banner and liturgical art display; an educational element inviting school students to attend art classes and tours of the exhibits; and a Live Quick Draw and Silent Auction. Saturday, April 6, Daniel Mitsui, a Chicago based artist, will be presenting on his work: "Mediaeval and Modern: The Religious Art of Daniel Mitsui."
