As part of Eastern State Penitentiary’s 2012 artist installation program in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, stained glass artist, Judith Schaechter, created 17 stained glass windows inspired by the prison’s dark history. The Battle of Carnival and Lent addresses the psychological border territory between spiritual aspiration and human suffering, which is evocative of theology but secular in purpose.
