The sixth annual “What’s So Good About Good Friday?” art show focuses on area artists’ reflections on Good Friday and their Christian faith. The exhibit coincides with Downtown Bloomington’s First Friday events and the show is organized by Art Circle of Bloomington-Normal in conjunction with Second Presbyterian Church.

 

The artists will be at a reception with refreshments from 5 to 7 p.m. The art will be on display through Monday, April 6. Second Presbyterian’s solemn Good Friday worship service at 7:30 p.m. follows the artists’ reception. The compelling Good Friday service features scripture reading with diminishing light, art and music until the sanctuary is dark and quiet.

 

“Artists often create works specifically for this show because it is a special opportunity to express their Christian faith through art,” Angel Ambrose, one of the leaders of Art Circle, said. “People who come to the exhibit find it a spiritually uplifting experience.”

 

The “What’s So Good About Good Friday?” show began six years ago when Downtown Bloomington’s First Friday art activities also coincided with Good Friday. Since then, the Good Friday exhibit at Second Presbyterian has grown with more artists. Last year, more than 1,000 people attended the show. The Good Friday exhibit features art by Art Circle of Bloomington-Normal members, Second Presbyterian Church members, local artists from many Christian churches, and students from several schools including Calvary Christian Academy in Normal.
