To serve as a resource for liturgical arts to clergy, architects, visual artists, and congregations throughout the region.
Clergy, and church building committee members will call or come to Augustana College to utilize the Hovland Center for Liturgical Arts as a resource for: architecture, visual art in and on the premises of the church, visual artist and architect referrals. The Center will be a catalyst for bringing together those whose work is manifested through liturgical arts such as pastors, visual artists and others through educational, networking and communications opportunities.
The Center for Visual Arts at Augustana University offers a strong fine arts program that includes the Eide/Dalrymple Gallery and the Hovland Center For Liturgical Arts.
Palmer Eide, Ogden Dalrymple, and Bob Aldern, former art faculty, established relationships with architects and churches in and around Sioux Falls, South Dakota. As a result, they provided consultation and commissioned work for churches, chapels and hospitals in the region. They envisioned a Center for Liturgical Arts that would continue fostering such relationships. The Hovland Center For Liturgical Arts carries on that tradition.
