While not primarily identifying as a visual artist myself, i do 'dabble' a bit, and my partner's an artist.
At my parish, artists are very valued, and creativity is encouraged. This is reflected most clearly in at least two of our established ministries: the Aesthetics Guild and the Icon Guild. Most recently, the Aesthetics Guild, in cooperation with the Altar Guild, created a beautiful ofrenda (traditional Day of the Dead altar - for All Saints' Day) along the ledges above the southwestern banco seating along the wall behind the regular altar. It was very beautiful (and large - like 30 feet long!)
The Icon Guild has produced many beautiful icons which adorn the parish, and are sometimes utilized during liturgy (for example, during the Palm Sunday procession, when the large "Not Made by Hands" is carried in the lead). The IG symposiums are open to all, and while the focus is definitely on traditional iconography styles, participants aren't restricted to that. Everyone is encouraged to exercise their creativity, and materials are made available to everyone, from children to elders.
The demand for equal rights in every vocation of life is just and fair; but, after all, the most vital right is the right to love and be loved.
