In 2018, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York hosted its annual MET Gala, the kick-off to an exhibit under the same theme. Oh…and the theme for the night? “Heavenly Bodies, and the Catholic Imagination.” I mean, was there any chance I WOULDN’T do an episode on it? 🙂
Want to hear others discuss the MET Gala? Check out these two talk-show clips about the night.
Featured Guests for the episode:
Dr. Anne Carpenter, associate professor of theology at St. Mary’s College. Check out the fascinating articles which led me to Dr. Carpenter here and here.
Dr. Jennifer Frey, professor of philosophy at University of South Carolina. Interested in art, culture, and faith? Check out her brilliant podcast Sacred and Profane Love.
Elizabeth Lev, art historian in Rome. Her book “How Catholic Art Saved the Faith” is a must-read for anyone interested in the integration of faith and art.
