Holy City at The Washington National Cathedral

Created by Brian Whelan for the Cathedral, Holy City is a series of nine paintings representing the three Abrahamic faiths: Christianity, Islam and Judaism. When displayed together, the panels create a work of art 9 x 12 feet.  The work will be displayed at The Cathedral from September 2016 to January 2017.  In this short video produced by the Cathedral, Brian talks about the inspirations for the work.
