Past Event

 
Throughout the ages cathedrals have been designed to use the arts to stress the themes of the sacred rituals performed in them. Sculpture, painting, and stained glass harmonize with architectural settings and liturgical ceremonies to create multi-sensory spaces intended to bring worshippers closer to the divine.

Join Jeffrey Weaver, associate curator of sculpture and decorative arts at the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Very Reverend Canon Mark Kowalewski, dean and rector at Saint John's Cathedral, in an evening exploring the art, performance, and experience of Canterbury Cathedral in England and Saint John's Cathedral in Los Angeles.

Special musical arrangements will also be presented by the Saint John's Cathedral Choir together with Flos Campi, a USC-based early music ensemble directed by Edward Tipton and Vicente Chavarria.

Complements the exhibition Canterbury and St. Albans: Treasures from Church and Cloister at the J. Paul Getty Museum.
