In all of Christendom, other than Christ Jesus, there is no other man portrayed as much as The Forerunner, Saint John the Baptist. This June 23rd we will be celebrating the Solemnity of the Birth of the Baptist with a special vigil lecture on his life in art. This is part of the ongoing Catholic Art Guild speaker series.

Come join us with guest lecturer Anthony Visco as we take time to review and contemplate how the episodes of the Baptist’s life generated so much work for so many centuries and where we are today in our art of the Baptist.

Anthony Visco, director of the Atelier for the Sacred Arts, graduated from the University of the Arts, where he received a Fullbright to travel and study in Florence. In 1975, he was awarded the Elizabeth T. Greensheilds Grant for figurative sculpture and has received the Arthur Ross Award twice for sculpture such as his triptych reliefs at the Catherine Pew Memorial Chapel and The Stations of the Cross at St. Joseph Church in Philadelphia. He has taught at Penn. Academy of the Fine Arts as well as New York Academy of Art. Visco’s sculptures, murals, and reliefs adorn several sacred spaces all over the country.
