Graces Received: Painted and Metal Ex-votos from Italy
Isabella Cannon Room, 7 p.m.
An exhibition of Italian religious folk art and craft curated by Leonard Norman Primiano features 53 votive objects from the Italian Catholic tradition dating from approximately 1832 to 1959. Viewers are invited to consider this powerful collection of religious art both in its cultural and historical contexts, and as examples of a European vernacular artistic tradition. First displayed in New York City from 2011-2012, the travelling exhibition will be at Elon through February 28.
