Art & Soul: Picturing the Spirit Within

Weekdays by appointment | Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:30 pm

Admission: Donations welcome.

Most religions include a belief in the human soul, but religious artists have struggled for millennia with the problem of how to represent the soul visually. Join us in exploring six objects from Glencairn’s permanent collection dating from ancient Egypt to nineteenth-century England, including several sculptures depicting the struggle waged by the forces of good and evil to control the human soul. Visitors to this exhibit are invited to share their own answers to the ancient question, "What does the soul look like?"
