SEEN Journal is a premier journal addressing Serious Art and Serious Faith. It is founded on the conviction that Christians in the visual arts are called to creative work, devoted to the church and present in culture, and works to be a resource to help respond to that calling. SEEN Journal’s broad coverage of religious and cultural issues encompasses all forms of visual arts, ethics, education, science, and the church. Though concerned with the most important issues facingartists in our time, SEEN Journal is lively, readable, and entertaining.
