Relics and Reliquaries Reconsidered

This focus show will feature contemporary reliquaries created by Maryland Institute College of Art’s (MICA) students in the Interdisciplinary Sculpture course Relics, Reliquaries and Enshrined Materials. The work will be inspired by and explore themes put forth by artisans in the material construction of sacred objects from the Walters’ Treasures of Heaven exhibition. Eleven emerging MICA artists mine the cross-cultural and historic conceptions of reliquary traditions. There will be an accompanying exhibition, Enshrined Materials, at the Current Space Gallery from Feb. 25–April 1, 2011.
