Journey to the Cross

A Lenten Series

These were the first pieces for First United Methodist Church in Waynesville, NC, made at the request of an art committee exploring the use of more art in worship. They were conceived shortly before Lent, without sufficient time to complete the set before Lent began.

Each panel contains a common element of a cross and footsteps, while other design elements are unique to each week. One panel was created and hung each week for the six weeks of Lent. The theme was taken from a series of Lenten sermons being planned by the pastor. On Easter the panels were draped with white and gold streamers, as shown for weeks 1, 3, and 5. 4′ x 10′ 2002
