About the Exhibit
Stations of the Cross is an interactive and spiritual art experience, based in a long tradition of the church, commemorating 14 events from the last hours of Jesus’ life. Intended as an art form to portray the story in more meaningful ways, the 14 stages offer a profound platform for meditation, education and prayer.
In this distinctive visual interpretation by renowned bronze sculptor Gib Singleton, the figures themselves incorporate abstract elements in their composition. Rather than creating a figurative visual series for the eyes, Singleton sculpted each station to convey a spiritual and emotional connection to the soul. This collection is considered a significant work of modern religious art.
About the Artist
"I think on some level every sculptor has a dream of doing the Stations of the Cross. It's probably the most spiritual subject any artist can deal with. Everything important in the human story is right there—life, death, courage, compassion, love, betrayal, redemption."
