The Jubilee Year of Mercy: Going Forth Sharing Life in Mercy Reception

A Godsend of an Art Show

“Pieta” by Vincent Van Gogh

Maybe the concept has fallen out of fashion, or the connotation seems too dramatic, but you don't hear the word “mercy” too often. In part, that is why the art show going down at Santa Maria de la Vid Abbey is titled “The Jubilee Year of Mercy: Going Forth Sharing Life in Mercy.” In the show, a long list of artists working in different mediums explore the concept in ways not explicitly religious. The reception on Friday, Nov. 11, is totally free to all visitors, and individuals seeking clemency can see the show until Dec. 12. (Maggie Grimason)
