The Divine Statues of Cleveland

I made a quick trip with my friend Camilla to the newly opened Museum of Divine Statues. It is a beautiful space, with fun eerie ambient music, a gift shop, and the layout and design of the exhibition is pretty fabulous.

I wasn’t raised Catholic or anything, but lately I’ve been into images of the virgin Mary, so I thought I’d come and take a look. All of these statues and candle holders had been donated when the Diocese of Cleveland started to shut down various churches. The restoration is due to a make-up artist! The perfect lip gloss and eye shadow job on Joan of Arc and many other saints kind of makes it obvious. All restoration is done on site and you can watch as it happens, which is pretty cool.

Right now the museum is only open on Sundays, but they are planning to expand with a coffee shop downstairs. I give it an A+
