ARTS+ recently received sad news (see the following paragraph from CIVA's website.) We thank our long-term partner CIVA and its members for their passion on arts and pray for a good transition!
CIVA: Christians In Visual Arts
A place where Christians passionate about God and the visual arts come together.
For over forty years CIVA has been at the forefront of the art and faith movement, working tirelessly to serve with professionalism, grace, and hospitality. CIVA's faith+art mission and community-building programs develop and equip artists, pastors, and scholars from around the world.
CIVA has accomplished its mission and will be transitioning into the final phase of its organizational life in 2023. Please refer to our FAQ page for more details.
As Solomon so wisely stated in Ecclesiastes 3, there is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens. After enjoying a 45 years-long season of drawing Christian makers and thinkers together for encouragement and edification, CIVA will cease programming at the end of April and finalize 501(c)3 dissolution paperwork by June 30, 2023.
We recognize you may have questions about what led to this decision and how it will affect our current members. In anticipation of those questions, we created this page to provide more information on the board’s decision.
