The Faithful

 

Saturday August 17, 2019 – January 2020 in Gallery 9

 

The devotional art of the santos in the southwest is distinctly different from religious iconography in rest of the world.  Though a market for devotional art flourishes in this area, the santos were not originally created as art.  Santos do not operate in the aesthetic realm but in the sacred.

 

This exhibition includes devotional art of various styles to illustrate the continuing tradition and devotion of the Santero.
