11th Annual What’s So Good About Good Friday? Art Show

11th Annual What’s So Good About Good Friday? Art Show

Eleventh annual “What’s So Good About Good Friday?” art show at Second Presbyterian Church in downtown Bloomington on Thursday, April 9 and Friday, April 10, 2020. This art show centers on the power of Jesus’ crucifixion, death, and resurrection to accomplish something impactful and lifechanging.

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”  (John 8:12)

    The idea for this show was birthed in 2010, when one of Angel Ambrose’s friends asked the question, “Why do Christ-followers think the cross is a good thing, when it was such an instrument of torture?” Her friend’s curiosity and discomfort were apparent as she inquired. Angel answered, “Because for the Christ-follower, the cross isn’t the end of the story, it is the beginning of our new story.” This show allows artists to shine their artistic light for Christ.

    We ask each artist to express the meaning of “What’s So Good About Good Friday?” in your own life. This meaning will be different for artist and that’s the beauty of this art show.  For some it is a literal depiction of Scripture. For others, it is an abstract of shapes and colors.  Each year, we see artistic creations that stir our souls and help us contemplate the beauty of the cross. Our greatest desire is to glorify God through art that will point viewers to the heart of our Lord.

    Art will be on display on Thursday, April 9 from 11:00 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Good Friday, April 10 from 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.. Reception for artists from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. on Good Friday, April 10. Second Presbyterian Church invites you to worship at the Good Friday Tenebrae service to follow the reception at 7:00 p.m. Artwork will also be on display during Easter Sunday services.
