As We Approach Easter...
"For the next 25 years, Santa Feans and
visitors will be blessed with a unique religious and artistic gift – 14 life‐size Stations of the Cross, providedby an anonymous donor.These bronze, life size Stations were sculpted by world‐renowned artist, Mr. Gib Singleton and were donated (on a 25 year loan) to the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. The Stations will be installed in the Lamy Gardens next to the Cathedral Basilica Parish Offices in August of this year."
Mr. Singleton is shown above: "Born in Kennett, Missouri, Mr. Singleton resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He is considered a modern master in the tradition of Rodin and Donatello, and his work has often been
compared to that of Giacometti’s. Singleton is perhaps the only artist ever to be represented simultaneously in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Vatican Museum and the State of Israel (whose large collection of his art was a bequest of Prime Minister Golda Meir)."
