This exhibit gives a biographical outlook of the larger-than-life British author, and offers a synopsis of his art and works, highlighting his views on freedom.

This excerpt is taken from the G.K. Chesterton Institute

Chesterton offers compelling answers to the cultural crisis of our time. That crisis takes different forms, all related: the separation of culture from faith, the privatization of religious belief, the impoverishment of the moral imagination, the assault on the dignity of the human person, the promotion of consumerist individualism and with it the destruction of authentic communities, most especially the family, the loss of a sense of the sacred and the sacramental. The civilization of love urged by the Gospel and eloquently articulated by Pope John Paul II has been challenged, it seems with success, by a pervasive culture of death.
