Celebrating Craftsmanship: Anglican Art & Architecture
Sharpen your observation skills and study the aesthetic components of the Old North Church while celebrating the craftsmanship involved in building and creating this national icon. Join us for a highly participatory experience examining the exterior and interior architecture as well as three fine art pieces inside the church, including 17th century wooden Baroque angels and an altar painting by John Ritto Penniman. Visit the second floor gallery of the church, see the organ up close, and stand on the altar while you consider the visual elements within the context of the 18th and 19th centuries and contemplate the labor and skill involved. There’s always more than meets the eye!
Disclaimer: This tour requires climbing and descending one flight of steep, narrow stairs to the second floor gallery of the church.
