Just across broad street from the Columbus Museum of Art, is the St Joseph Cathedral. On its upper levels, there is the obvious place of worship, and below ground level is a a basketball court and exercise area. On the outside however, we find prime examples of Lancet Windows.
This piece depicts Christ post crucifixion and being mourned by multiple figures. Mary Magdalene, the Virgin Mary, and most notably for this scavenger hunt, St. John, who’s dressed in the red drapery. Another notable feature is the caste depicted in the background which is meant to represents the wealth of Holland in the sixteenth century.
This piece found within the Columbus museum of art, is the kind of painting that Artemisia Gentileschi became known for. Much like her other works, this oil painting depicts a woman who is under the power of a more powerful man due to the conditions of her society, but still demonstrates an inner strength despite that. It in a way is similar to Artemisia’s journey in becoming the owner of a large studio in a male dominated profession.
Figures Round a Table by Candlelight
Once again found within the Columbus Museum of Art, Figure Round a Table by Candlelight, is an oil painting created by Gerrit van Deurs. It was finished withing the range of 1663-1664, and is an example of tenebrism, with its strong shadows only illuminated by a single light source.
10. Masjid Namarah Pakistani Community Center
Located within Columbus, but a bit away from the downtown area near the intersection of Hamilton and Refugee Rd, is the Masjid Namarah Pakistani Community Center. While it is admittedly a very western building with a very a generic brick exterior in most places, the front pillars are modeled off of Pakistani architecture, and it is colored green which in Islam often represent paradise.
