The Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University will feature paintings by Makoto Fujimura and Bruce Herman beginning November 29, 2012. Fujimura and Herman, along with composer Christopher Theofanidis (Yale University) and theologian Dr. Jeremy Begbie (Duke University), have collaborated on this touring exhibition and concert, which responds to the generative poem Four Quartets by T. S. Eliot -- a masterpiece that is still able to transcend its era and social location, generating fresh response and inspiring artists of this generation. The artists and composer have each created new work in response to the imagery, emotion, and allusion in Four Quartets, and have collaborated with Dr. Begbie to initiate scholarly and theological discourse that underscores Eliot's relevance for this new generation. A gallery talk and reception for both artists will be held at the Martin Museum of Art on January 15 at 2pm. The artists will also participate in a panel discussion of Faith & the Arts at 4pm that afternoon in the Alexander Reading Room at Baylor University. That evening, there will be a Baylor School of Music concert in Jones Hall of a newly commissioned piano quintet by composer Theofanidis at 7:30pm.
