Join us at Monk's Cellar for a night dedicated to the power of beauty and the Catholic aesthetic tradition. Discover how beauty not only informs the world around us, but has sparked the Church out of some rough times. 

This presentation will offer a brief survey of Catholic art throughout the Church's 2,000 year tradition as as well as convey a deeper understanding of how beauty can once again save the day for the Christian West and illuminate us personally in the process. 

We are honored to welcome a special guest, Catholic Artist and speaker, Leanne Tracy.
