How to Commission Visual Art

Why commission a work of art?
 
The purpose of liturgical art is to point beyond itself, to deepen one’s understanding and worship of God. A congregation might commission a work of art
- to help celebrate a special event or to mark a significant point in their faith journey.
- to provide a visual reminder of the mission of a gathering place such as the narthex, fellowship hall, or church school lobby.
- as an expression of congregational stewardship of the creative gifts of the people of God.
