Lichfield Cathedral is showing 40 works in different media made by 18 contemporary calligraphers and lettering artists as part of “Holy Writ: modern Jewish, Christian and Islamic calligraphy” until 15 June. The subject matter is drawn from the sacred texts of the Abrahamic religions or from related texts such as prayers and spiritual poetry. The artistic interpretations range from relatively traditional to modern. The exhibition features two-dimensional work, sculptures and digital animations. The exhibition also includes volumes of the Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible, which some of the exhibiting artists contributed to. The British Museum loaned work by Arabic calligraphers. The exhibition, which costs £10, has welcomed over 6,000 visitors during the first three weeks.
