The Precious Light solo exhibit sheds light on old beliefs to encourage new ways of thinking. It examines and explores the themes in the King James Bible, which is celebrate its 400th anniversary.

Created by artist David Mach, the Precious Light exhibit showcases over 70 pieces of his work. In this case, he has used thousands of metal hangers to recreate the Crucifixion scene. No stranger to this particular material, Mach's sculptures are incredibly intricate and detailed, showing such pain and emotion so as to surely resonate with each visitor.

The Precious Light exhibit essentially offers a contemporary look at ancient scripture, and is bold and even slightly unnerving. The details Mach uses are intricate, and effective.
