GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 23, 2015) – Now in its 18th year of telling the gospel story through breath-taking living displays of art, the annual Living Gallery at Bob Jones University has become an Upstate Easter tradition.  Programs will be in Rodeheaver Auditorium April 2-4 at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. with an additional program April 4 at 2 p.m.

You will be challenged and inspired by the drama, music and the life-size re-creations of masterpieces brought to life with live human models.

This year’s Living Gallery drama focuses on how God called out to the “lowest” of society, such as Zacchaeus the tax collector, to walk the straight and narrow as well as those who were blatant enemies of the cross such as Saul.

“Saul met God on the road to Damascus as a rival of the Christian faith” says director Jeffrey Stegall, “but God used His glorious light to break the darkness of Saul’s unbelief and transform him into a missionary to bring others to Jesus Christ.”

The program highlights a new sculpture titled Damascus Road, which tells the story of Saul’s conversion. The Damascus Road sculpture was designed by local sculptor Doug Young, who is also well known for several sculptures including Shoeless Joe Jackson, located in downtown Greenville; Gethsemane, located on the campus of North Greenville University; The Patriot, located at J.L. Mann Academy; Della Gillette, located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee; and the Creche for Bob Jones University’s Christmas display. His most recent work is Perrin, located in Perrin’s Park at Cornerstone Baptist Church on Pelham Road in Greenville.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for children ages 6-12. Tickets may be purchased at the BJU Programs and Production box office or by calling (864) 770-1372 from noon to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday or online.

The Museum and Gallery at Bob Jones University is open for extended hours, 2-7 p.m., on Living Gallery performance days. Tickets to the Living Gallery provide free admission to both M&G sites at Bob Jones University and at Heritage Green on April 2-5.
