Art as Witness
Nathan (who posted a comment recently on the "Memorizing Poetry" thread) wrote an excellent essay a few years ago for a Regent class, discussing Art as Witness. In responding to three other Christian views of what art is ("Art as Sacrament," "Art as Creation," and "Art as Stewardship"), he dialogues with several important voices in the "what is art?" conversation: David Jones, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Dorothy Sayers, and Regent professor Loren Wilkinson. I highly recommend checking this essay out. Would love to hear what people think of Nathan's ideas. I can't find any holes in his argument. Great stuff!
