Below are links, with a brief description of what the site is about. If you missed the event don’t panic! The gallery will be on display until May 4th, so you still have time to go see the incredible works of art.
Loyola Press: This site explores the crossroads of faith and many diverse forms of art including: music, film, culinary and more.
