Stephen Antonakos: The Room Chapel

Exhibition Website

May 6 2018 - Sep 15 2019

For the first time in more than twenty years, experience The Room Chapel by pioneering sculptor of light Stephen Antonakos. Originally built in 1996, this architectural installation featuring the artist’s Neon Panels will be specially recreated for the Allentown Art Museum. This work not only represents the realization of formal, geometric and spatial concerns explored throughout the artist’s career but also recalls his early years in a small mountain village in Greece, where tiny chapels served the spiritual needs of people throughout the country. Antonakos said of this piece, “I am hoping to provide a space that visually and spatially may help us remember or rediscover our inner selves, our own individual thoughts, feelings and spirits.”
