onc-angels-5There’s Always More Than Meets the Eye!
On Friday, October 28, 2016 at 6:00 pm celebrate #ArtsMatterDay by taking a special after-hours Art & Architecture Tour. This hour long interactive tour examines the exterior and interior architecture of the church as well as three fine art pieces inside the church. You will have the opportunity to consider these visual elements within the context of the 18th and 19th centuries and decode their meaning by looking, discussing, and looking again. There’s always more than meets the eye!
