GUEST ESSAY BY JOAN AGAJANIAN QUINN
I met Scott Colglazier when I was a trustee on the board of Pilgrim School, a college preparatory school and a division of First Congregational Church of Los Angeles, where Scott was the CEO and Senior Minister.
More importantly, he was my spiritual leader and personal friend to my family.
Scott and I shared a mutual respect and love for art and artists. It didn't take long, with the help of Scott, before I was curating exhibitions with him in the smaller Shatto Chapel of First Church.
He used our art exhibits in his sermons and lectures, often inviting small groups to interact with the installations. He also used these art exhibitions to reach out to the larger community of Los Angeles.
Looking back on these experiences, we were in essence creating an art laboratory, setting new goals for artists and finding novel ways of transforming the world of art.
