Description

Using the examples of "The Cat's Fugue" by Domenico Scarlatti and many of her own poems, Luci Shaw speaks on the role of the artist Christian to create and promote art with redemptive value. Shaw explains how the artist's role is to translate ordinariness and extraordinariness into art that expresses the essence of experience and redeems chaos back into order.
