Virginia Wesleyan Students Create Artistic Expressions of Religious Freedom
This spring semester, the Center for the Study of Religious Freedom collaborated with Virginia Wesleyan Art Professor Sharon Swift to create a student contest that would engage art students in creative expressions of religious freedom.
Students in Professor Swift’s digital art course were asked to select a quotation from an American president on the topic of religious freedom, and then use photo manipulations, color, typestyles, page design, and composition to create original, digital artworks.
The winners were announced on Friday, April 28, 2017, when the CSRF welcomed the campus community to a display featuring the digital art creations. The winning images show the breadth of design styles, as well as the breadth of presidential perspectives on America’s First Freedom.
Congratulations to our creative and talented student winners:
