Art Exhibit: "Intellect and Virtue: A Catholic Tradition"


Wednesday, Jan. 5, through Friday, Feb. 4


The Catholic University of America
John K. Mullen of Denver Memorial Library, May Gallery
620 Michigan Ave., N.E.
Washington, D.C.

DETAILS: The Catholic University of America will display items related to several Catholic saints, educators, and social justice advocates who embody intellect and virtue through their educational and professional mission of helping those in need.

Among those who will be featured in the exhibit are several CUA alumni and those with other connections to Catholic University, including Bishop John Joseph Keane, Monsignor George Higgins and Euphemia Haynes.

The theme of the exhibit is tied to President John Garvey's choice of his inaugural theme, Intellect and Virtue: The Idea of a Catholic University. The theme springs from two sources: Garvey's abiding interest in the distinctive character of Catholic higher education and the inspiration that he has drawn from the lectures on the idea of a university by Cardinal John Henry Newman, who was beatified in September 2010.

The inaugural theme will extend throughout the spring semester with programming devoted to intellect and to virtue.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, call 202-319-5065.
