Visiting German artist Angela Glajcar has designed an sculpture specifically for our St. Joseph Chapel (this is an unbelievably special occurrence at Holy Cross.) Entitled ‘Curaliam,’ her sculpture is approximately thirty feet in length and has been constructed of shorn fiberglass sheets that resemble sheer hanging fabric. The sculpture has been installed just above human-height-level down the center aisle of the chapel and is illuminated by both artificial and natural light at different times during the day and night (thus totally transforming the structure and its environment every time you encounter the piece.) Her work is inspiringly beautiful, ethereal, and thought-provoking and really invites the audience to enter into conversations about the intersection of art and faith. I will be depressed when it has to be taken down.
