This altar presents a 3’x2′ array of eight folding doors made from cardboard, tape, paper, and ink,  featuring all eight “LIVES OF THE SAINTS” stories from Lipany’s St. Anna altar.  The format combines Slavic gothic winged altars (see also “polyptychs”) and more modern photocopied mini-comics.

Here’s the construction process in photographs:

* On the evening of the receoption, you can tell “Visitor Services” you’re a guest at the Art Center Faculty Exhibition, and they will let you into the museum for free!  No kidding!  Try it!  (Let me know what happens.)
