Thanks to a generous grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, a unique and permanent Institute of Sacred Arts (ISA) will soon open on the campus of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary (SVOTS).

The ISA will introduce a curriculum where art and theology are mutually interpretive: theology informing the arts, and arts informing theology.

SVOTS will begin expanding its curriculum. Students drawn to the Seminary for its richness in the arts will be able to specialize by following a newly designed track. All seminarians will experience the interweaving of the arts into their core courses, including Church history and theology.
Additionally, an artists-in-residence program will help the ISA offer the highest level of professional expertise in the practice of the arts.

Besides, the benefit of the ISA will be extended to the general public with the annual five-day Sacred Arts Summer Institute, beginning in 2020. SVOTS faculty, artists-in-residence, and visiting artists will lead master classes on subjects such as singing, conducting, and music composition; icon painting and carving; literature and poetry; and homiletics.

The Seminary will also expand collaborative relationships with other institutions, theological schools, and universities, as well as with sacred arts creators, and create audio and video podcasts for the public.
