Collector’s Items

Biblical Art and Private Devotion

January 18–March 09, 2002

The exhibition displays for the first time in a museum setting the private collection of contemporary artist Sandra Bowden, President of Christians in the Visual Arts (CIVA).

Sandra Bowden’s collection, consisting exclusively of Biblical subject matter, serves as a springboard for the investigation of the modern passion for collecting, as well as of the role of art in enriching one’s life, expressing one’s faith, and as a form of private devotion.
