St Albans Cathedral’s Journey to the Cross Exhibition
Exhibiting over 14 paintings, as well as sculptures and videos, Peter Walker’s work adorns towns and cities nationally and internationally.
This exhibition takes a look at the contemporary interpretation of the Journey to the Cross, including new and innovative ways and means of exploring the suffrage, hope and message behind each of the traditional stages of the journey of Christ to the Cross, as well as the resurrection. Incorporating painting, sculpture, and audiovisual/projection artwork, the exhibition was designed as though walking through the artists’ studio and allowing the visitor to feel as though they are seeing the artworks develop.
Suitable for upper Key Stage 2 and Secondary pupils and led by the St Albans Cathedral Artist in Residence, schools can book a special 90-minute workshop centred around the exhibition. The workshop would include:
- A guided tour of the exhibition
- A comparative look at the Cathedrals artwork, including the medieval wall paintings
- An opportunity for children to respond artistically to the exhibition
Shorter, self-guided sessions are also available.
