Alight: Art and the Sacred


Alight will introduce you to works of art in a way that explores the art's religious dimensions and devotional power.Use the map to direct you to locations where key works can be found – some in major collections, and some hidden gems in places of worship or outdoor locations.
Use the Collections tab for 'curated pilgrimages' that connect works in different places across the city and offer unique perspectives on temporary exhibitions as well as insight into permanent ones.
When you find an artwork listen to short commentaries by theologians, artists, art historians and others. They will share some of the spiritual responses they have to these works.
Alight invites you to take time to contemplate the works you alight on, and if they set your spirit alight, you can capture your response with the Alight slider.
While using the interactive map, you will be notified when you are near a key location. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
