The Armchair Liturgist: Visual Observance of Feasts

A nearby parish has an artistically sensitive pastor. When I visit there, I often see icons or other images on feast days and during seasons.

I have an icon of the Transfiguration, so I placed it in my parish’s narthex today with a lit candle.transfiguration icon

I would love to get some of the talented people in the parish, especially students, to produce some images–paintings or drawings or some kind of illumination–to assist in the observance of the liturgical year and its day-long celebrations.

If you were the liturgist sitting in the chair, how would you manage such things? Or perhaps the permanent shrines and works of art in your parish are enough? What do you think?
