PAINTINGS CASE
Ottawa, Illinois, located in northcentral Illinois, is the home of 16 paintings depicting the life of Jesus Christ.
The paintings are displayed on the west side of Washington Park just north of the downtown business district.
They can be viewed from LaSalle Street (Illinois Route 23) during the month of December.
The following is an article published in the
Ambassador, a publication of the Associa-

covered with black plastic and were later
unveiled during a ceremony at which Dr.
D. James Kennedy spoke.
