Arts in the Church Show Poster / Printed poster / 20×24″ / 1982

$435

One printed poster.  This poster is both a piece of art and an artifact from one of the great works of Eleanor Dickinson’s life, her documentation and depictions of Pentecostal revivals. From Eleanor Dickinson’s obituary in the Los Angeles Times:

“Her body of work, which stretched from the arresting images of worshipers in revival halls to artifacts such as a snake box, signs urging repentance and a pickle jar with strychnine that true believers might drink, became so authoritative that it was housed at the Smithsonian and displayed in museums from Tennessee to the Bay Area.

Dickinson’s art and relics from the Pentecostal revivals sought to humanize the raw emotions of religion, not to make a spectacle of what might seem strange and extreme to others, a critic with the Knoxville News Sentinel observed in 2005.

‘I just don’t judge people,’ Dickinson said.”
