Angels Unawares Sculpture Exhibition

Posted: 1/1/2021

Beginning on January 7th, 2021, the Patrons of the Arts Georgia Chapter, along with Holy Spirit Preparatory School and Holy Spirit Catholic Church, will be sponsoring Timothy Schmalz’s Angels Unawares sculpture exhibition in Atlanta. The sculpture will be on display at Holy Spirit Preparatory School (Upper School quad) from January 7th through February 3rd and will be open to the public daily.

The 3.5-ton, 20-foot-long sculpture, is a second casting of a piece commissioned by Pope Francis and created by Canadian artist Timothy Schmalz, who has received broad attention for his Homeless Jesus sculpture. The original casting was installed in St. Peter’s Square and unveiled by Pope Francis on Sept. 29, 2019, the 105th observance of the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. The sculpture that is on tour is a gift to Catholic University. It was part of the 2020 observance, and the statue’s return to campus and permanent installation will be part of the 2021 World Day of Migrants and Refugees.
