As poet James Russell Lowell once said, “Creativity is not the finding of a thing, but the making something out of it after it is found."

Join local and regional artists Friday, March 29, in an expressive journey as they present their reflections on Good Friday as well as other elements of faith. All art will be displayed in the lobby of Second Presbyterian Church, located at 313 N. East St. in Bloomington.

The public can view the art exhibits in the fourth annual “What’s So Good About Friday?” show from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 29. Artists will be present that evening from 5 to 7 p.m. to discuss their artwork. Light refreshments will be served during the evening.

The theme of this exhibit is centered on Good Friday, the resurrection and the hope we have in Jesus Christ because of his sacrifice (John 19-20).

The art exhibit will close with a Good Friday worship service at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary at Second Presbyterian Church. The Good Friday story is told through scripture with light diminishing and a variety of music and art until the sanctuary is completely dark and quiet.

Rev. Dean Kladder, show organizer and associate pastor at Second Pres., describes the show as “a unique way for both the public and the artists themselves to encounter God’s love through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

The Good Friday art show features members of the Bloomington-Normal Art Circle, local artists from Downtown Bloomington, students at Calvary Christian Academy and members of Second Presbyterian Church.
