Art Exhibit from Wednesday, October 4th through Friday, October 13th.

Introduction by Vicki Vega, Associate Dean, College of Music and Fine Arts and Professor of Music Therapy.

This traveling art project engages the general population with those who have brain injury, both in the struggles and successes they encounter. Each mask has been painted by a survivor or caretaker in Louisiana explaining the emotions they feel living with brain injury. “There’s a story behind every mask and behind every mask there’s a person, a person that’s been touched by brain injury.” Loyola is proud to be the first official exhibition venue for this fascinating and moving mask exhibit.

Dr. Lynn Brien (Geography), Dr. Phil Bucolo (Biology), and Dr. Joel MacClellan (Philosophy) will briefly present their backgrounds, share a personal story about their own environmental engagement, and end with what they do here at Loyola. Then they will engage the audience in a discussion.

The Christians is an unflinching look at values in America — and its power to unite or divide.

Directed by C. Patrick Gendusa, Lucas Hnath’s The Christians centers on Pastor Paul, who started his church ten years ago in a modest storefront. Now it houses thousands, with a coffee shop in the lobby and a baptismal font as big as a swimming pool. But Paul is about to preach a sermon that will shake the foundation of his congregation’s beliefs. Staged as a church service and backed by a live choir, The Christians is both epic and unexpectedly intimate, an unflinching look at values in America — and its power to unite or divide. Named a Top 10 Play by Time Magazine, the The New York Times called it “Mesmerizing” and described Hnath “as one of the brightest new voices of his generation.”
