The Easter story has been told for nearly 2000 years in the Bible and through numerous sermons and publications. When Peggy Bang taught Art History at North Iowa Area Community College, she was amazed at how realistically Jesus’ final days have been depicted by artists through the ages, even before the invention of the camera.
Join Peggy on March 21 for her class, Jesus’ Last Days Told Through Art. Using images of various works of art, Peggy will tell the Easter story, enlightening us on the importance that the Bible has had on the art world. We will view works of art based on the spiritual writings of the four Gospels depicting Palm Sunday, Jesus praying in Gethsemane, Pilate washing his hands of the responsibility of Christ’s being crucified, His crucifixion, the Pieta, His tomb and His Resurrection.
If you have seen artworks pertaining to the Easter story that you would like to discuss, please bring them along. We will add them to our discussion.
Jesus’ Last Days Told Through Art class will be offered at Trinity Lutheran Church on Wednesday, March 21 at 2:00 p.m. and again at 6:45 p.m. in their Fellowship Hall. The class is free and open to the community. No registration required. For additional information contact the church at 641-423-0536.
