Fire Within: Art Installation for Pentecost

May 20, 2018

2018 Grace Cathedral Artist in Residence Sukey Bryan continues to consider the truth of climate change with the installation of her 12-paneled piece entitled Fire Within. She designed it for the holiday of Pentecost using the image of wildfire as an expression of the Holy Spirit, a metaphor of the desire to burn away weakness, fear, selfishness and wrong direction within, and of a commitment to truth—the cleansing fire, the reclaiming fire. As California continues to recover from some of the most destructive fires in the state’s history, Fire Within reminds us of the delicate balance between nature and people, destruction and regeneration—and echoes the Sotomayor mural showing the destruction of Grace Church in the 1906 fire.

Step outside to see Water Without, on display until May 27.
