MOBILE, Ala. – The Alabama School of the Arts at the University of Mobile is hosting a special art exhibit titled “Stations in the Street” through Easter that retraces Jesus’ final steps in Jerusalem and his journey to the cross. 

The exhibit in the Martin Hall lobby consists of 12 different stations that tell Jesus’ powerful story, using elements, ideas, and objects from his journey to depict the cross in each piece. There is a scannable QR code that pulls up bible verses, a devotion, and a meditation section to correlate with each image. The exhibit is free and open to the public Mondays through Thursdays from 8a.m. to 5p.m.

“The ‘Stations in the Street’ exhibit is made up of twelve unique images that encourage the observer to reflect on the good news of this season. That we are not forsaken, and that Jesus has overcome the world,” said Dr. Andrew Goodwin, dean of the Alabama School of the Arts.

The artwork was created by Scott Erikson, a Christian artist, author, performance speaker, and creative curate who mixes autobiography, mythology, and aesthetics to create art and moments that speak to our deepest experiences.
