Homeless Jesus

Homeless Jesus

This low-profile, life-sized sculpture, installed with private funding on the property of Roberts Park Methodist Church, portrays a figure lying on a bench, huddled under a blanket in a position familiar to any urban dweller who has observed homeless people trying to find shelter and privacy.  When drawing near, the viewer observes that the sculpted figure has wounds on its feet similar to those seen in artworks depicting the crucified Jesus Christ.

The artwork was installed by Roberts Park
