Mission Statement

As a ministry of the Western Dominican Province, the Santa Fe Institute will promote fine arts in general and sacred art in particular as tools for the new evangelization; and promote the Internet as a resource aid to assist in promoting the fine arts as an evangelical tool. To accomplish this mission, the Institute will: 1) maintain a research library for artists and academics whose work aligns with the goals of the Institute. 2) maintain a fine arts collection for the purposes of providing resources for “gallery classrooms” which instruct participants in the truth that beauty is a fundamental need and right of all humans, and an avenue to the Divine. 3) make these resources available to the educational programs of DSPT and WDP, specifically as they relate to religion and the arts. 4) encourage artists who wish to integrate theory and praxis, especially as it relates to production of sacred art.
