The Word as Art

Contemporary Renderings

July 27–October 11, 2001

In this exhibition, paintings, sculptures, stained glass windows, and works in other media by a number of contemporary artists from the United States, Israel, and Korea juxtapose, often side by side, traditional iconographic representations with novel interpretations of centuries-old symbols. As a group, the works illustrate the vitality, rich modes of expression, and enduring tradition of art with spiritual content.
