Location: Carl Ridd Sanctuary in Bryce Hall

Reception to follow

The University of Winnipeg launches Artsfest 2015 with the unveiling of its recently restored historic stained glass window Theology, Queen of Sciences Surrounded by Faith, Love, Hope, Wisdom, Moral Conduct, Humility, and Love of Learning. A reception will take place in the Chapel located on the main floor of Bryce Hall, followed by a performance featuring faculty from the Manitoba Conservatory of Music and Arts.

Theology was created in 1892-93 by esteemed British artist Henry Holiday upon commission by the first Principal of the University’s founding Manitoba College, John M. King. The artwork has been lovingly restored by Prairie Stained Glass and Yarrow Sash and Door thanks, in part, to funding from the Government of Manitoba’s Heritage Grants Program.
