Holy Week Art Exhibit 2020

April 7, 2020

The Stations of the Cross refers to a series of images depicting Jesus’s last day. The stations grew out of imitations of the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The object of the stations is to help the faithful make a spiritual pilgrimage through reflection on Jesus’s suffering.  Within the past decade, the traditional stations of the Roman Catholic Church have made way for more ecumenical and biblically based stations.  The ten stations of this exhibit were selected from scripture and are unique to this event.

This exhibit of the Stations of the Cross grew out of similar events curated by Rev. Doug Minnerly at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in 2006-2008.  This is the second year that it has been produced at Village Chapel and curated by the Rev. Dr. Amy Wallace Parker, Minister of Education and the Arts.

Due to the shelter-in-place restrictions in effect due to Covid-19, the actual exhibition of these works has been delayed.  This guide will hopefully present a virtual yet no less spiritual experience of the art for this most unusual observance of Holy Week.

We are very grateful to the artists who have created work for this exhibit without compensation.  If you are interested in purchasing one of the pieces, you may contact the artist directly or through the church office.
