Resonate calls for visual art submissions for new hymnal
New collection to feature visual worship resources

As the Resonate team gathers material for a new hymnal, they are rolling out a call for a first-of-its-kind feature within Mennonite hymnals: a vision to include visual images that complement the musical and verbal rhythms of worship found in the collection.

The Resonate team is calling for visual artists to submit content to be considered for inclusion in the new collection. Artists are encouraged to explore the “Theological Inspirations and Possibilities” and to take seriously the “Aspirations for the Use of Visual Imagery” outlined in the “Call for Submissions of Visual Art” available at MennoMedia.org/Resonate. Important technical requirements are also delineated there. Artists may submit a single image or a series of pieces. Submissions are welcome between October 2017 and February 2018.

For more information or to schedule an interview, contact LeAnn Hamby at 540-908-3941 or email LeAnnH@mennomedia.org.
