Light Up: The Creative Process
December 11, 2016
Our 2016 Artists in Residence discuss their installation, Jacob’s Dream, and offer their perspective on the value of public art.
Jacob’s Dream: A Luminous Path is an installation of light and moving images designed to evoke a pathway between earth and heaven, between the visible and invisible, as we continue exploring our “Home” theme. Bergery, a media artist and cinematographer, and Campbell, a light artist whose work is in the collections of both the New York and San Francisco Museums of Modern Art, have previously collaborated on critically-acclaimed projects.
Every year we offer a residency to an artist (or artists) who creates work that illuminates the cathedral’s annual theme, amplifying the cathedral’s vision, mission and goals–we believe in the power of art to inspire people and we want to make art accessible to everyone.

About The Forum
The Forum is a series of stimulating conversations about faith and ethics in relation to the important issues of our day. We invite inspiring and illustrious people to sit down for a real conversation with the Forum’s host, Malcolm Clemens Young, the dean of Grace Cathedral, and with you. 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.
Free and open to all
