Ralphael Plescia's 'Christian School'

Step inside an incredible labyrinth of sculptures depicting obscure passages from the Bible.

For over 50 years, Ralphael Plescia has been transforming a former auto parts store into an otherworldly dimension known as the "Christian School." Larger than life sculptures of serpents, lions, and the Heavenly Mother form a living artwork that must be experienced to be understood.

Join us on Obscura Day as we explore Ralphael's visionary museum and school. During this tour, Ralphael will share his philosophy and artworks as he guides us through his garden and museum. We'll meander through tunnels and venture into the dug out basement, where lost souls reach out from the pooling groundwater.
