Uplifting the Arts

We believe that art connects people to the depths of their souls and to the divine, so we foster the arts in many ways.

Grace Cathedral’s vision is a spiritually alive world, and its mission is to reimagine church with courage, joy, and wonder. Art is an integral part of that vision and mission. Art is transcendent. It represents the best of what makes us human. It connects us to others and also to ourselves. From our Artist in Residence program to art exhibits and programs throughout the year, our cathedral is a work of art filled with works of art.

2023

Spacious Grace

Now in this eighth year, we invite you to experience our specially selected arts programming amidst the soaring arches, majestic columns, and stained-glass windows in a new way. For two weeks in February, artists are invited to present a wide range of cultural events — theater, dance, music, and more.

Artist in Residence

Every year since 2012, we have offered a residency to artists to create work illuminating the cathedral’s annual theme and reimagining church as they do so. We have had an incredible roster of artists in residence, starting with Anna Deavere Smith in 2012.

Grace Light

Ideas at Grace

The Forum

The Forum is a series of stimulating conversations about faith and ethics in relation to the important issues of our day. Our guests range from artists, inventors, and philosophers to pop culturists and elected officials, but the point of The Forum is singular: civil, sophisticated discourse that engages minds and hearts to think in new ways about the world.
