Catholic Art in the Modern World


The artist Alfonse Borysewicz, who received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1995, brings his paintings to parishes and talks to parishioners about how art interacts with faith. In this podcast Alfonse speaks to Tim Reidy and Kevin Clarke about the role of art in Catholic communities, and how Catholic artists depict sacred figures today.
