St. Bernadette Institute of Sacred Art
The St. Bernadette Institute of Sacred Art is a society of supporters of the arts who acknowledge the genius and the fruits of artists in all fields of expression. Our main duty is to encourage and invest in the advancement of the arts.
Our undertaking is to place an emphasis on the importance of artists dedicating their gifts and talents to the beautification of the world — which includes the centuries-old tradition of sacred imagery and the furtherance of these works of art. We believe that it is imperative to cultivate the understanding that art is a fundamental form of human development and expression.
We provide educational programs that benefit individuals who are “called” to be artists — and to the general public.
We strive to work in union with people of many faiths, fostering cultural appreciation and respect. We recognize the importance of all forms of art and strive to encourage new generations of artists to furnish quality art which is necessary for the survival of society.
