2019 Art & Design Contest

Spiritual life and the arts have a long history of collaboration. The Kay Spiritual Life Center seeks to foster this historic relationship by offering American University students the opportunity to contribute artwork for the use of the Kay Center in its materials and in its worship life.

Worship Banners/Paraments

During our interfaith services, we make use of banners and paraments (the cloth hanging from the podiums/lecterns, see below). While our paraments were designed for interfaith services, the banners are frequently borrowed from our United Methodist community. We are hoping to have some that would reflect the interfaith nature of our First Wednesdays in the Chapel service and other interfaith celebrations.
