Everyday Icons functioned as an interactive installation, incorporating live portraiture, painting, and hand-lettering. We brought this project to Berlin, Germany, Alicante, Spain, and Santa Ana, California. Each installment of the project began as our team assembled a large, freestanding frame that was seven feet tall and up to fourteen feet wide. The frame then took on a neo-baroque style as we decorated it with trash and junk we had gathered locally. Artists created portraits, painted halos, and wrote text.
Everyday Icons spoke symbolically to the holiness and value we find in God. It was our team’s way of saying, “it’s not what we do that gives us purpose or that makes us holy, it’s who we know.” Through Christ, God takes us into his family, speaks words of love over us, makes us His saints, and gives us purpose.
To be a community that disciples, equips, and sends-out artists that better understand their calling, influence, and impact. This transformational creative community makes the Bride of Christ more beautiful and gives the world a better understanding and view of God.
