Visiting Artist

Art and beauty provide us with powerful reminders of God’s abiding and loving presence in the world. They also point us to Christian Humanism, which lies at the very heart of Salesian Spirituality. This series aims at educating, illuminating, and inspiring all those on the DeSales campus and the surrounding community with new insights into the Salesian heart and spirit, including: unity in our diversity; love and care for creation, and our connectedness to the cosmic heart of Christ. ​ Join our artist-in-residence, Bro. Mickey McGrath, OSFS, as we journey through the world of art, culture, beauty, and color. All events are FREE and open to the public! Some events require online registration.
