The Verostko Center for the Arts views the experience of art, at its best, as a spiritual one. All cultures, both historic and contemporary, create forms of visual art, dance and music that are especially valued for the elevated experience they often evoke. Such engagement joins us in the common bond of our humanity and nourishes the human spirit. Whether it be a medieval manuscript, a rare liturgical vestment, or a 21st century algorithmic drawing, the VCA is committed to deepening both our engagement and our understanding of art.
