Visual Art

“Arts exist at the heart of faith: faith is not a concrete experience,
so we need arts to express our faith.

Gallery Exhibitions

Free art displays are regularly on exhibition in the Gallery, located in the Loggia of Fourth Church — the glass corridor between the Sanctuary and the Michigan Avenue Courtyard. Access is via the 126 E. Chestnut entrance.

Permanent Collection

The permanent collection of art at Fourth Presbyterian Church is the Jeanne and Tom Olofson Collection of Sacred Art, which comprises, among other pieces, “The Ascension” by Gerald Griffin and the Buchanan Chapel hanging sculpture, “Quaternion” by Alyson Shotz.
