The Pilgrim’s Progress Story: Private View

Martyrs’ Gallery, Star Brewery, Lewes
Martyrs’ Gallery is presenting an exhibition of words and images that depicts and celebrates Hans Feibusch’s allegorical mural Pilgrim’s Progress.
Pilgrim’s Progress was created in 1944 and uses John Bunyan’s allegorical story to tell Feibusch’s own story of escape from Nazi Germany and his arrival in 1930s England. It was painted for the crypt of St Elisabeth’s Church in Eastbourne and presented as a gift to the local community, but is now under threat of demolition unless enough money can be raised to remove it to a new site for public display once again. More information about the campaign to save it can be found here.
This exhibition is part of the Lewes Artwave Festival.
