Touch, Anoint, and Heal: God with Us

About the Exhibit

It was not mere metaphor that caught Peter’s hand when he sank beneath the waves! God invades material reality to stir our ordinary, tangible world toward his extraordinary purpose. And Jesus, God incarnate, embodied the Divine fully as he touched, anointed, and healed those who drew near to him. Traced through all of Scripture, the finger of God inscribes the law on stone, imparts the word to willing lips, encourages John the beloved in Revelation, and continues to animate our day-to-day. The exhibit seeks to bring the touch of God down from the lofty ceiling of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and into day-to-day corporeal reality. This exhibit features 31 original works of 2-D and 3-D art created in a variety of media.

CIVA is grateful to Apostles Anglican Church in Lexington, Kentucky for their generous gift in support of this exhibit. This exhibit is scheduled to open December 2012 at Apostles Anglican.
