Makoto Fujimura is an acclaimed contemporary artist whose work has been exhibited across the world. He is founder of the International Arts Movement and a former presidential appointee to the National Council on the Arts. Most recently, he is the author of Art + Faith, published in January of this year by Yale University Press. On this episode, we speak with him about those subjects—art and faith—and about finding beauty in human brokenness, the relationship between creativity and religion, and what Fujimura calls the “theology of making.”
