The Vocation of St. Wendelin, YouTube Video

The Vocation of St. Wendelin is a film that contrasts the rebirth of a once closed Cleveland Church (on its 5th anniversary of reopening) and an art installation created by sculptor Sandro Bonaiuto.

Over 5 years, the church has grown steadily while attracting new families. A statue was commissioned to mark this event and to provide a prayer garden for the community at large. The documentation of sculpting, casting, welding, polishing and final unveiling are shown. This video explores the importance of this work as an art installation and as a symbol of resurgence for a Cleveland Community.
