Diversity in Religious Art

Episode 3 | 26m 25s | Video has closed captioning.

Can depictions of religious icons in art & architecture have an impact on the deepness of one’s connection to their faith? We speak with Laura Hurtado, Director of the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, about the history of Eurocentric images in Christian art, and Black artist Melissa Tshikamba, whose works diversify religious images, about growing up feeling unrepresented in her own faith.
