Jesus Statues Arrive In Time For Christmas

December 21, 2021 - After months of being delayed, the Matthew 25 Collection sculptures are arriving today in Cleveland to be installed just in time for Christmas.  Community West Foundation announced the acquisition of the artwork in July as a way to expand important conversations around issues of social justice, privilege, compassion and empathy.  Cleveland will be only the second city in the world, following Rome, Italy, to have the full collection of all six bronze figures in the Matthew 25 Collection by Canadian artist, Timothy Schmalz.

Homeless Jesus at Saint Malachi Parish, 2459 Washington Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44113
