New “Praying with Icons” Exhibit in Fuller’s Library
David Allan Hubbard Library features collection of ancient and modern icons
The David Allan Hubbard Library is home to a new exhibition, “Praying with Icons,” presented by the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts, with the blessing of Archbishop Joseph (Al-Zehlaoui) of the Antiochian Diocese of Los Angeles and the West.
The exhibition—which will run from March 5 until April 28—is designed to lead viewers through both past and present use of icons in divine liturgy as well as personal devotion within the Orthodox tradition. Themes include Christ and the Mother of God, feast days, and the saints.
On Thursday, March 22, an opening reception for the exhibit will be held at the Hubbard Library from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. At 5:00 p.m., Rev. Fr. Patrick O’Grady, pastor of St. Peter the Apostle Antiochian Orthodox Church in Pomona, California, will deliver a lecture, “I Venerate the Icon, I Worship the Prototype,” interspersed with liturgical chanting selections.
