You are invited to experience a stunning private collection of religious art at the Worcester Art Museum (WAM) during its only New England visit. Highest Heaven explores a time when art, spirituality, and religious devotion flourished in Spanish and Portuguese South America in the 1600s and 1700s. The exhibition includes more than 100 paintings, sculpture, furniture, ivories and silver --works that were created as articles of faith or symbols of civic order and to convey Catholic principles, bring social order, and spur conversion among colonial populations. These exquisite works of art have rarely been shown in public, so don’t miss this chance to see them! WAM is holding special “Parish Days” on select Sundays --
March 12, April 9, May 14, June 11 and July 9 – through the run of the show. Parishioners who bring their church bulletin to WAM on those days will receive $2 off admission for up to 4 people. For more information about Highest Heaven and for WAM hours and admission, visit worcesterart.org.
