Artists Panel Discussion: Relics and Reliquaries-Reconsidered

A panel including the contemporary artist Virginia Maksymowicz and students from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) will discuss the art featured in the manuscripts gallery, highlighting their own perspectives, while exploring how art can serve to engage the service of faith.

Relics and Reliquaries: Reconsidered, an exhibition to be installed in the Manuscript Gallery in the Walters Art Museum and the Current Space Gallery, is created by students in MICA’s Interdisciplinary Sculpture course, Relics, Reliquaries and Enshrined Materials. The work is inspired by and explores themes from the Walters Art Museum’s exhibition, Treasures of Heaven. Eleven emerging MICA artists mine the cross-cultural and historic conceptions of what a reliquary is or can be. Their art work reflects myriad approaches to the history of reliquary traditions and the sacred interpreted in a contemporary context.
