Windows into Heaven: Russian Icons & Treasures

Friday, Sep 27, 2013 10:00a to 5:00p

Few customs or traditions have endured for longer than a millennium, but the use of icons in Russia is among them.This exhibition features more than 225 examples of Russian Orthodox iconography, along with other liturgical and devotional items.Icons are often called windows into heaven because they are said to give the viewer a glimpse of the eternal realm. Many of the items are more than 100 years old, predating the Bolshevik Revolution (1917).
