Grace Catherdral’s inaugural artist in residence program

Grace Catherdral’s inaugural artist in residence program

Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, launches its inaugural Artist in Residence program with noted playwright and actor Anna Deavere Smith.

During January and February 2012, Ms. Smith will share in the life of the cathedral, preach, host Forum events, and create a new work centering on the topic of grace.

From Grace’s press release:

“We are excited to have Anna with us for the inaugural Artist in Residence program at Grace Cathedral,” says The Very Rev. Dr. Jane Shaw, Dean of Grace Cathedral. “Anna has a special connection to the cathedral because she was confirmed as an Episcopalian here while attending the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. She initiated the idea to write and perform a play at the cathedral that explores ‘What is Grace?’ We are so delighted that she will be with us to participate in our cathedral life in the coming weeks and we hope the community will enjoy the premiere of My Grace. Her presence reinforces how important the arts are at Grace Cathedral.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
