Windows to Heaven
September 14 - October 16, 2009
This exhibition features Byzantine icons depicting holy trinities, the Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ, St. Nicholas and important feast days. Icons are created through a meticulous process of fasting, prayer and ritualistic painting. They are viewed by the faithful as windows into the divine world; believers pray with icons, asking for intercession between themselves and God. It is our goal in creating “Windows to Heaven” to showcase icons from all over the world in a variety of media in order to illustrate the unique and integral role icons play in both the Church and in the home.
