1750 Arts is a new ministry at Idlewild whose vision is to provide opportunities grounded in our Divine Creator which stir imagination, provoke wonder, form faith, and invite transformation.
Embedded in A Vision of Idlewild is the phrase “…music, poetry and art flourish (here) in gratitude to our Creator….” This gratitude will be on display as we deck our halls with Idlewild history and works from within the congregation’s wellspring of artistic talent. Displays will aim to inform and inspire, evoke and provoke, and delight and invite viewers to sense Idlewild’s tradition of welcome and the depth of interest within this community to learn more about matters of faith.
Spring of 2020, 1750 Arts exhibited Threshold of Abundance by Amanda Kohr. Read the artist statement and view the price list.

The success of this ministry is dependent on congregational participation. If you are interested in serving on the 1750 Arts committee, please contact Anne Bradley Thomas. The committee will meet three times a year and help support the programs and ministry of 1750 Arts.
