The Stations of the Cross at the Cloisters on the Platte
In 2015, ten sculptors were honored to be commissioned by entrepreneur and philanthropist Joe Ricketts, to create the 14 Stations of the Cross for the Cloisters on the Platte. These bronze figures consist of some of the largest and most complex representations of the stations of the Cross in the world today. The final clay sculptures were digitally scanned and enlarged to monumental size and printed with a 3D printer. They were then sent to a foundry to be cast in bronze, chased and patinaed. This revolutionary digital process allows us to cast the Stations in multiple sizes.
“… a group of artists to accumulate a body of work that could, otherwise, take one or two artists a lifetime…Top notch sculptors, really at the top of their game, doing some of their best life’s work…”
-Kurt Halverson, Project Manager – The Cloisters on the Platte
