The Schlafly Bottleworks in St. Louis, MO, partners with an organization called, Midrash, creating an event called "Theology @ the Bottleworks." Once a month, people from all over the city, all walks of life, and usually multiple religions come together for a thoughtful discussion about a current event. In 2015, I went to about art, where the question, "What is art?" was asked. It was an inspiring conversation, and I took pages of notes. From those notes I pulled out these quotes and paired them photographs I've taken over the years. May they speak to you as much as they have to me.
