Winnipeg to host Reformation Exhibit

October 21, 2017 No Comment

WINNIPEG – Lutheran Church–Canada’s (LCC) national office in Winnipeg, Manitoba will host Here I Stand, a special exhibit commemorating the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, in late October and early November 2017.

Immerse yourself in Reformation history with #HereIStand, a poster series developed by leading German museums. Come face to face with Martin Luther and the world he shook through artwork, statuettes, models, period books, and more. Discover how the Gospel transformed the world 500 years ago—and how it continues to do so today. The story comes alive in this special event hosted by Lutheran Church–Canada.

The exhibit is open from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. each day at LCC’s national office (3074 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg) from October 27 to November 5, 2017. Admission is free, although donations are gratefully accepted. Visitors should note that viewing this exhibit involves taking stairs to the second floor.

The #HereIStand poster series was developed by Germany’s State Museum of Prehistory Halle, the Luther Memorials Foundation of Saxony-Anhalt, the Deutsches Historiches Museum Berlin, and Foundation Schloss Friedenstein Gotha. LCC is grateful to Lutheran Laymen’s League of Canada for sponsoring the printing of these posters for its Winnipeg exhibition.
