About The Gallery at Catholic Theological Union's New Academic and Conference Center:
When discussions began regarding a new academic and conference center for CTU, an art gallery was part of the plan from the beginning. The primary benefit to having artwork in a theological school is that the men and women studying for ministry are exposed to reveal truth and find meaning in the power of art, and thus are better equipped to understand their world, to communicate and interact with the different cultures. With the spacious new gallery devoted to exhibiting quality art, CTU has moved to a new level of capacity in presenting inspired art exhibits. In this new attractive setting there is abundant space for larger works and greater quantities of art, with opportunities for more mediums of art to be presented such as sculpture. With this resource, professional artists will find this gallery a welcoming environment for their work. The Gallery at CTU is a center where the diverse community of Hyde Park, the theological and faith communities of Chicago, and the cultural life of the city can encounter new ideas and art forms. As the only school of theology with gallery space in the Chicago area, CTU has a unique opportunity to establish itself as the place where art and spirituality engage. Our next exhibit is Peace: A Visual Essay. This exhibit will enhance CTU's summer programming such as Peacebuilders Initiative, Summer Institute, ForMission, and Catholics On Call. Visit .

About Catholic Theological Union:
In 1968, three religious communities came together and founded Catholic Theological Union (CTU). Their vision was to offer seminary students a priestly formation that mirrored the spirit of Vatican II-the renewal of the church. Today, CTU is the largest graduate school of theology in North America and a true global community. There are 32 religious orders within CTU, and the student population is a mix of religious women and men and lay students. Over 3,200 CTU graduates serve the church across the United States and in 65 countries worldwide. They work in parishes, homeless shelters, prisons, hospitals, schools, colleges and universities, gang ministry, hospices, and a myriad of other ministry settings.
