Discussion Prompt: Fujimura’s Essays
NOTE: Based on the essays of Makoto Fujimura, what do you think Christian artists are trying to convey about their faith? Do you think they are having an impact, or in the words of Francis Schaeffer (1974), has the art world been taken away from us by modern culture leaving us nothing to say in this venue about our faith or our Creator?
NOTE: In this discussion let’s respond to Fujimura’s essays and recap the last 5 sessions.
NOTE: ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS
1. How has your view and understanding of “art appreciation” changed in the past 5 sessions?
2. What is the “take away” for the CCU business, education, human resources, or Christian leadership, psychology, criminal justice, etc. majors?
As you are crafting your final response, think of what Aristotle is reputed to have said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
