APS Bank recently supported two art exhibitions. ‘The Human Turned Divine’ took place at the Metropolitan Cathedral Museum as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations. Curated by art historian Maria Cassar B.A. (Hons), M.A. and under the direction of Museum Director Mgr Rev Dr Edgar Vella, it featured important crucifixes from private, public and ecclesiastical collections spanning the 15th and 21st centuries. The exhibition was inaugurated by His Grace Archbishop Charles J Scicluna and ran until 30 November 2019, attracting hundreds of visitors. In his inauguration remarks Archbishop Scicluna spoke about the significance of the crucifixion and asked the distinguished gathering to reflect beyond the outstanding objects on exhibit and on the moment where the profound wickedness of sin was conquered by the immense love of God. 

Xebgha Nies 2 - The Human Clay, which displayed works of art exploring the theme of the human figure, curated by Caroline Miggiani B.A. (Hons), M.A., was hosted at Palazzo de la Salle, Valletta, seat of the Malta Society of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce. The eight leading local artists, Andrew Diacono, Debbie Caruana Dingli, Steve Bonello, Marisa Attard, Kenneth Zammit Tabona, Saviour Baldacchino, Francesca Balzan and Paul Scerri, met with visitors during the vernissage. APS Bank CEO Marcel Cassar inaugurated the exhibition, commenting that, “For the Bank, and for me personally, supporting the arts goes way beyond PR and our CSR agenda. It has to do with our values. A work of art touches deep within our core, so powerful that it can make real-life changes, potentially influencing our culture, politics, the economy and the future of society.”
