About the Stations of the Cross exhibition:
Stations of the Cross weaves through religious as well as secular spaces, from The Cloisters museum to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine to the 9/11 Memorial. Instead of easy answers, Stations aim to provoke the passions: artistically, spiritually, and ethically.
It encourages visitors of all faiths and none to take this journey using the custom app, Alight, which offers maps and podcasts from leading artists and thinkers to guide users on their way.
Stations of the Cross has travelled across the world raising awareness for those in need of refuge. It began in London in 2016, with stops including the National Gallery, the Tower of London, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. In 2017, it was held in Washington, D.C., with stops at the National Cathedral, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and adjacent to the Supreme Court.
