In Dialogue Events: Passion Play

During Passion PlayProfile is thrilled to be partnering with local artists and with the Geezer Gallery in an exploration of the impact of religious art and iconography on visual artists.  Join us prior to each performance to hear from a different artist about their work and about how religion informs their process, be it to move them towards or away from an expression of faith. Presentations will begin at approximately 6:40pm for evening performances and 1:20 pm for matinee performances.  

For the duration of the festival, we invite you to enjoy the display on the wall in our lobby of work by each of the artists we are featuring.
