Over the past couple of years I’ve been quick to denounce modern art that is overpriced , ready-made , non-visible , or simply by Thomas Kinkade . What I haven’t done (at all, now that I think about it) is highlight contemporary art that is worthy of praise. In a modest attempt at balance, I’d like to introduce you to the insanely talented and creative Shea Hembrey.

I won’t ruin the surprises in his charming presentation (which both skewers and humanizes modern art) by explaining what he’s up to. Instead, I’ll just encourage you to watch this video:

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
