Women and the Arts

Art Collection

The Grail is home to an amazing collection of art representing genres from music to textiles, poetry to ceramics. Our collection has been made by Grail hands, or given to The Grail as gifts over the years.

Each year we offer pieces from our International Crèche Collection to small museums and institutions for display purposes. We welcome requests for this and other traveling exhibitions representing the mission of the Grail, its history and many ways The Grail has influenced generations.

Special Exhibits

Throughout the year The Grail showcases special exhibits from its collection and from local artists. Watch this space for announcements. Contact Caroline DiGiovenale, Art Coordinator, to learn about you can host an exhibit at art@grail-us.org.

Art at the Oratory

The Art at the Oratory series showcased the role of art in social transformation.  It connects art with transformation (personal and societal) by showcasing a Grail member and her art medium. Each Showcase includes a community organization as a partner, and highlights how

Grail + Art = Transformation.

Art at the Oratory is at The Oratory in Loveland, Ohio (931 O’Bannonville Road), the headquarters for The Grail in the US. Each showcase is FREE and open to the public.  The exhibits will be on display from August thru November, Monday-Friday 10-4 or by appointment.
