Exhibition “Faces of Christ” in Camposanto Parque del Recuerdo

Last Sunday, September 3rd, at the Camposanto Parque del Recuerdo in Lurín (Lima), the popular art exhibition titled “Faces of Christ in Peru” was inaugurated.

exposición de arte popular titulada “Rostros de Cristo en el Perú”.

This significant artistic exhibition took place after the Sunday Mass, in a special ceremony that included the participation of Javier Leturia, director of ICTYS (Theatrical and Social Cultural Institute) and Damián Pérez, Identity and Culture Manager of the Camposanto Parque del Recuerdo.

Our brother Javier shared that “in this exhibition we see the suffering face of Christ in his different invocations, reminding us that pain and death do not have the last word because they are not a defeat, they are an opportunity to suffer with Christ and with Him achieve the Heaven where we will be infinitely happy”.

This is the third exhibition that ICTYS and the Camposanto Parque del recuerdo have held so far this year.

In the month of March they presented the posthumous exhibition of the teacher Néstor Castro (*1939 +2022) “Via Crucis, path to Easter” which brought together a complete work with fourteen stations of the Via Crucis and a Risen Christ. And in the month of May, “Maria, in the popular devotion of the Popular of Peru” which showed works by nineteen traditional artists from ten regions of the country.
