Walk of the Parables
The Walk of the Parables consists of 39 original oil paintings each four feet wide and seven feet high. The paintings are the work of noted religious artist Mark Pedro; and are thought to be the first series of paintings depicting the parables of Jesus ever undertaken by a single artist.
These oil paintings were formerly on display at Christus Gardens in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
American Votive Folk Art or Immigrant Community Art
American Votive Folk-Art or Immigrant Community Art became stylish back in the early 1900’s. This art form began to decline in popularity around 1916, but this community folk-art continued in some isolated towns into the early 1940’s. BibleWalk is very honored to display the largest collection of this art form to be found in the United States. This collection of 35 pieces was formerly housed at the Gem Vesper’s Museum in Barton, New York.
