Stations of the Cross: Ash Wednesday through Easter
Heavenly Rest is participating in a city-wide public art project during Lent. “Stations of the Cross” examines the journey of Jesus, inviting people of all faiths to consider injustice and pain across the human experience. The focus for 2018 is the experience of immigrants and refugees. The exhibition presents a pilgrimage comprised of 14 “art stations” located across Manhattan, from The Cloisters and the 9/11 Memorial to Trinity Wall Street and our very own church. Heavenly Rest is hosting the 8th station, Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus, represented by Michael Takeo Magruder’s piece “Lamentations for the Forsaken.” For more information about the exhibits, locations, and more, check out their website, artstations.org, or download the app, Alight: Art and the Sacred, available through Google Play and iTunes.
