The Catholic Art Institute was thrilled to host its third annual conference on Oct. 24, 2021,

bringing together the world’s leading artists and scholars to rediscover

the power of beauty in the modern world.

The Conference opened with a Choral High Mass in the baroque splendor of Chicago’s historic St. John Cantius Church and featured musical selections from Mozart, Haydn, and Puccini.

A video of the mass can be viewed below.

Conference presentations took place at The Drake Hotel, followed by an elegant banquet and panel discussion moderated by William Newton, Art Critic for the Federalist.

We'd like to thank Elizabeth Lev, Sohrab Ahmari, Cameron O'Hearn & William Newton for

sharing their gifts and artistic knowledge, making this year's conference particularly inspiring.
