Children of the World Illustrate the Bible

June 15–August 20, 2006

This selection of children’s artwork comes from a much larger group commissioned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel. The thirty colorful images featured in MOBIA’s Education Center were made with paint, pencil, crayon, ink, fabric, and even seashells. The artists come from all over the world, from Mexico to New Zealand to the Philippines.

The only thing these diverse artworks have in common is their inspiration:  the thrilling stories of the Hebrew Bible. From Jonah’s stay in the belly of the whale, to the parting of the Red Sea, these tales serve as the perfect material to display the talents of these young storytellers. 

MOBIA is grateful to the Office of Public Affairs of the Consulate General of Israel in New York for the generous loan of this exhibition.
