Art with impact
Art is all about expression. The way a dancer moves across the stage, the way a painter carefully places each brush stroke, the way an actor delivers a line—each is an expression of the artist’s vision, and each can communicate a powerful message.
Art also has a rich history in the Jesuit tradition, and for members of the Loyola University Chicago community it can be a powerful way to tackle injustice and to challenge the status quo. You’ll find this happening each day in Loyola’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts, but inspirational works of art aren’t limited to one department. From cancer patients on the Health Sciences Campus in Maywood to students at Arrupe College to alumni working in studios and theaters around the country, people are bringing to life works of art influenced by Loyola’s Jesuit, Catholic mission.
