“Icons in Transformation,” the traveling exhibition that has toured cathedrals and museums in both Europe and the United States, is now fully installed at Our Savior’s and awaiting your visit!

The exhibit had its grand opening this past Sunday, October 1, with remarks from Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken, Augustana University Art Professor Scott Parsons, and, of course, the artist, Ludmila Pawlowska, and her husband, Jan Lech, director of the Gallery Odenslunda Scandinavian Art Center in Sweden, where the couple reside.

You are welcome to view this impressive collection of artworks—more than 200 pieces—by the internationally acclaimed abstract expressionist Ludmila Pawlowska, which adorns spaces throughout the main floor, including the worship spaces. Exhibit hours are Sundays 12:00-2:00 p.m.; Mondays 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.; Tuesdays by appointment (contact the Church Office, 605-336-2942); Thursdays 6:00–8:00 p.m. (except Thanksgiving); Saturdays 2:30–4:30 p.m.; and First Fridays 4:00–6:00 p.m., but you are welcome to browse on your own when the building is open.

“Icons in Transformation” is free and open to the public. By hosting this world-class exhibit, Our Savior’s seeks to engage and converse with people of all backgrounds and beliefs, support the arts in Sioux Falls, and contribute to relief efforts focused on our suffering Ukrainian neighbors.
