“Un Camino: Catholic Night at the Nasher”

This was a night to remember, both spiritually and visually. Visitors walked around to eight “stations” and were led in a different prayer by local clergy at each one. The “stations” included images such as the Vision of Saint John, Saints Peter and Paul, along with other Christian artwork. Each prayer was chosen specifically because Catholics around the time of El Greco actually did say these exact words. Along with that, Spanish music composed by a contemporary of El Greco played in the background as the visitors journeyed through the exhibition.
