Grotto And ArchitectureMonday, June 29, 2015
The boys don't have camp this week so I took them on my own fieldtrip: Ave Maria Grotto in Cullman, where I got my love of art environments. And now that they're older and able to better consider construction, this will be great for a project we have coming up this summer: art-a-day.
I have a set on Flickr of some previous visits to the Grotto. Here are some from this visit:
Brother Joseph's last piece was completed in 1958. Just in the last few years, another craftsman has come forward to add pieces to the Grotto.
Shrine to Our Lady of Knock:
'Bascilica of Jasna Gora':
The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help:
Basilica of Guadalupe:
Once we were done, we walked over to the Abbey Church.
