To "illuminate" means to "light up" or "help to clarify or explain". For five years, Spark and Echo Arts has been commissioning artists to create new work and share personal perspectives on Bible passages, bringing fresh
illumination to ancient text. This project allows the artist to actively engage in meditation, interpretation and even application of living, breathing words.
Exhibited here is a collection of highlights from the past five years: a
celebration of individual and collective responses to the Bible.
As the Church celebrates Epiphany and moves from Christmas to Easter, we invite you to walk alongside these artists and dialogue with their visual
responses even as you perhaps grapple with your own thoughts of meaning, faith, and life, and examine what it means for the Word to be illuminated and revealed.
