Happy Easter! While we were away during the 40-days of Lent, Robert Indiana's iconic LOVE sculpture came back on display at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Things go away, and things change hopefully for the better. Months ago, we sadly announced its removal from outdoor display, but the sculpture came back on display indoors in March. It's an image inspired by his roots in the Christian Science Church in his home-state of Indiana. When we began Lent, we were not sure that AOA would return either, but below are a few of the Twitter connections/friends who helped get us through Lent this year (thank you). Most of all, God worked to resurrect our purpose: "Providing daily news to religious artists and collectors."
"The Resurrection - John 20: 1-23" by Donald Jackson for the Saint John's Bible. The image was featured during today's visio divina section of Easter service led by Pastor David Zier at Life Journey Church.
