Year of Faith Exhibit
This exhibit of photography by Robert Flischel features images that capture art from more than 50 churches in the greater Cincinnati area. Flischel explains the story behind these churches on his website.
Throughout American history, Europeans (and others) immigrated to the United States in search of a new life, one featuring religious freedom. These immigrants brought with them their own heritage, which included beautiful works of art to be installed in their new Catholic churches in their inner-city neighborhoods. In the 1950's, the city landscape began to change. Hundreds of thousands of Catholics left inner-cities which left many churches and schools empty. As a result, a vast aggregate of 150-year-old religious art work is endangered - threatened by both suburban sprawl and the ravages of time and weather.
