Hour 2: Redeeming the Arts

Artist Ron DiCianni is a special guest on Dawn and Steve Mornings to tell us about his incredible story and his acclaimed art. 

Born on the North Side of Chicago, Ron grew up in an unlikely area to produce a talented artist. After attending the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Ron embarked on a career in commercial illustration. Quickly recognized as one of the nation’s most talented illustrators, Ron’s client list was soon dominated by prominent companies ranging from Eli Lilly™ to McDonald’s™. He was chosen as the 1980 Official Olympic illustrator and considered one of the most successful illustrators of his generation. One passion still overshadowed that success… the desire to Reclaim the Arts for Christ. His self-stated mission is to “Reclaim the Arts for Christ” and he has taken on the role of a pioneer in what has quickly become a second Renaissance. In 1999 a major secular art magazine considered Ron’s painting Safely Home to be among the top 50 paintings of the year worldwide. Last year, Ron unveiled the long-awaited Resurrection Mural, a two-year endeavor that produced a 12-foot x 40-foot mural that is the largest known contemporary depiction of Christ’s Resurrection in the world. This year, Ron is proud to debut a powerful new pro-life painting entitled Before I Formed You in the Womb, which has, in turn, launched a new non-profit foundation. Ron currently lives in Southern California with his wife Pat.
