Some info about the show provided by the venue:

The Downtown Presbyterian Church (DPC) of Nashville, Tennessee is pleased to announce this year’s winter/early spring art show, The D.I.G. Through Art Show. This year’s theme: Anti-depressant. DPC’s annual D.I.G. show, now in its 11th year, is meant to provide the community with a chance to come together and “D.I.G. through art.”
This event coincides with the regular first Saturday downtown community Art Crawl and the church’s monthly Art-Luck potluck dinner and art reception. The D.I.G. show began at DPC in 1998 as an extension of the church’s artists-in-residency program.
These shows have explored different themes each year. Previous themes have included last year’s “Embodiment,” and also “Icons and Idols,”“Incarnation and Risk,” and “Human Sacrifice.”
Lent is the church season of 40 days (not including feast days) before Easter. This year, Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17th and continues through Holy Week, ending before Easter Sunday, April 4th. The season is symbolic of both the 40 years of Israel’s wandering in the desert and the 40 days of Christ’s fasting and temptation in the wild. DPC feels this is an appropriate season to invite artists to join the church in wrestling with challenges and complexities of faith.
