50’x19′

Those are feet not inches. Those specs by the ladder are my daughters and I. We are small, but we are not “Honey I Shrunk the Kids Small.” This is a giant work of art.

I love my church, and they are doing something HUGE. It is a journey to the Cross. I am charged with painting the Centurion soldiers. My part of this project is a small piece of the whole, and a really huge painting. My friend Kevin, a gifted theologian, helped guide me in getting my head around who these guys were. I spend a couple weeks studying up, and I have started painting. There is more information about what Journey to the Cross is below. I think it will be Holocaust museum impactful. It is for all ages (English and Spanish), and will be free but you need to reserve a ticket. If you are an artist or someone who wants to be artistic and in Dallas and want to come spend a couple hours helping me, I would love to work with you. I just have a couple weeks to get this done. Message or email me for details. Julianacrownover@gmail.com

Dallas, TX: Church of the Incarnation will host Journey to the Cross, a special experience: an interactive art exhibit open to the public April 10–13. The exhibition will draw believers and non-believers alike into the compelling story of the central figure of the Christian faith and his final days on earth before his death, burial, and resurrection. In these largerthanlife art installations, scripture is experienced in new ways, offering more with which to wrestle, beyond what we’ve ever read or been told.

 

The artistic vision for this experience has been led and cultivated by renowned local artists Pamela Nelson, exhibited in more than 100 national venues, and visual artsinnovator, Aaron Bensko among others. With a team of artists and partners from area churches, they have worked together for more than two years to deliver the beauty and power of the Easter story in this way.

 

There will be age-appropriate guidance for children to receive this story in a safe but impactful way, as well as Spanish translations for all ages.

 

 Exhibit Dates: Wednesday, April 10–Saturday, April 13

 

 Tickets are free, but a reservation is required to make sure only small groups move through the experience at a time

 

 Reservations are available at incarnation.org/journey

  1. Juliana, This is amazing and what an undertaking for you and your church. What a blessing to have your girls helping with this. I’m sure the whole project will impact many people. I love how you use the talent God has given you to bless others.
