"The Great O Antiphons"

Linda Witte Henke (Symposium presenter)
A seven-piece installation inspired by the ancient Advent collects of the same name. Dating back to the fourth or fifth centuries, the prayers address God using several Old Testament names and express a growing sense of urgency for the Messiah’s coming, giving voice to human longings that are as relevant today as they were in centuries past. 

"Tabula Rasa"
Hallway Gallery
Linda Witte Henke (Symposium presenter)
An installation consisting of eight panels. Employing the ancient vesica piscis as its primary design element, this work links universal human experiences with seasons of the Christian liturgical calendar to invite reflection on how those experiences are instrumental in writing the stories of our lives.
