Ecce Sublimia: The Art of Christianity is an exploration of how art is used to teach religious studies. Featuring classical and contemporary pieces, this exhibition explores the major concepts of Western Christianity, along with Niagara University student research. Ecce Sublimia is Latin for “Behold the Sublime.”
Divided into four thematic sections, Ecce Sublima delves into depictions of sainthood: modern icons, the sacred feminine especially the Madonna and Child, religious vestments, and the immersive art environment of Niagara Falls-based artists Prophet Isaiah Robertson.
From holy apparel to sculptures, stained glass to modern works on paper, this exhibition takes you on a tour of the sacred works of Niagara University and sites of worship around Western New York.
