Festival of Arts
Why would a church host an arts festival?
Historically, the church has always been at the forefront of promoting the arts and creating the arts as a glimpse into what it will be like to enter the kingdom of heaven. The great cathedrals of Europe are essentially giant museums of art – sculpture, painting, music, architecture, glasswork – all creating the feeling that something even better awaits.
The arts and celebrating the arts offer a door into the church for creative people who are longing for ways to express their creativity and use their gifts to the glory of God. The Cumming FUMC Festival of Arts was established in 2008 with the intent of showcasing professional and student visual artists in gallery settings and performing artists in concert settings.
The two-week-long Festival of Arts has quickly become recognized as one of the leading fine arts festivals in North Georgia and regularly features the disciplines of visual art, music, dance, film, drama, and literature.
