We invite you to consider bringing one of our traveling exhibits to your community. Whether a church, university, gallery, or other space, there is always room for quality artwork coupled with the depth of experience that arises from broad theological perspectives. Here is what CIVA members and friends are saying about our Traveling Exhibits:

Visual art reaches places within us where words cannot go and CIVA’s quality of exhibits is unmatched in potential depth of meaningful experiences by the viewers.
 – Barbara Glenn, Chairman of Visual Arts Team, First Baptist Church, Scottsdale, Arizona

We have enjoyed more CIVA shows than I can count. That probably illustrates that CIVA is our go-to-source for interesting, professional, inspiring creative exhibits. Our congregation and community love these shows. I do not know of another similar resource for touring faith-based art.
– Mark Wingfield, Associate Pastor, Wilshire Baptist Church

The thoughtful guide you offered elevated the experience from just another art show – any number of which are in Topeka on any given First Friday – to a religious experience. The guide encouraged me to view each piece as a spiritual tool. And as I walked through the exhibit with the guide in hand, I was called to consider how art can inform faith, to experience the connections between each work of art and my own religious experience, and to compare my theological perceptions with those of a diverse group of artists.
– Anonymous viewer, Seeing the Savior, First Presbyterian Church, Topeka, Kansas
