To end the book, this chapter offers three case studies as examples of how one can creatively engage the broader community in ways that positively affect the surrounding culture. This conclusion evaluates three works of art that are cross-disciplinary and multisensory and do not easily fit into any of the earlier chapters. Untraditional art forms can inspire us to be creative in ways that do not necessarily carry long art historical traditions. These untraditional art forms may therefore inspire new ways to engage both the broader and the worshipping community. This chapter looks at the installation and community-based art of contemporary artists Ann Hamilton, Theaster Gates, and Tim Hawkinson as their work exemplifies perfectly how the universal outpour motif can demonstrate a pneumatological aesthetics that engages both matters of embodiment and the community to a broader audience.
