Exhibit Highlights ‘Marian Apparitions Collection’

The upcoming exhibit Faith, Reason, and One-Hour Processing curated by Joel Whitaker, highlights photographs and objects from the Marian Library’s Apparitions Collection. The exhibit includes both enlarged reproductions of archival images alongside original photographs by Prof. Whitaker.

The exhibition, rather than attempting to prove or disprove the images, explores the intersection of the sacred and aesthetic capacities of each piece. As a curated collection, the images become an investigation into religious visual and material culture, vernacular photography, the durability of religious belief and practice through modern media, and an individual’s need to “see” and provide evidence of a belief.

In addition to the photographs, the exhibit includes contextual essays by Prof. Anthony Smith from Religious Studies.

The exhibit runs January 15-February 12, 2015 in Gallery 249, Raymond L. Fitz Hall.

Opening Reception:
Thursday, January 22, 5pm-7pm
Gallery 249, Raymond L. Fitz Hall

- Jillian Slater, Librarian/Archivist
