Educational Opportunities
I recently came across this article about an LDS member who has made his old master print collection available for display as LDS churches in the Denver area.

This has me thinking. Why not do the same thing for and by evangelical Christians. We need to get rank-and-file church members exposed and thinking about the arts - especially examples of well crafted art works. Having a loan collection that can be temporarily displayed at churches, Christain schools, and Christian colleges would do much to increase cultural literacy and appreciation in the Christian community.

Of course this should be limited to visual art. Opportunities for prefessional quality performing art concerts, plays and dance should also be considered.
