"Landscapes: The Presence of the Religious"
Aiming to celebrate the International Museum Day 2016, the Arte Sacra Museum of Funchal organizes a collective exhibition consisting of works produced by local creators and audio-visual archive’s material. Being aware that an approach to their religious art collections always involves a recall on the life contexts of each community, the museum takes a more specific approach by enquiring about the importance of the religious role in the geographical perception and cultural construction of the island’s territory; over time beliefs and traditions were “sculptured” by the various ways that popular religiosity took as an expression of the people’s Catholic faith.

Free entrance.
