For centuries, art has reflected faith. In Christianity, Jesus is the central figure believed to be the son of God and the savior who died to atone for humanity’s sins. How did artists represent such a crucial figure and why? Dr. Robert Schindler, The Fariss Gambrill Lynn and Henry Sharpe Lynn Curator of European Art, takes a deeper look at the artworks in this exhibition, the messages they convey, and how they each reflect their respective time and place.
Art and Conversation is for people who want to learn more about art in an informal and interactive setting. These programs, with the exception of May and July, are held on the first Thursday of each month January through October at 10:30 a.m. Coffee and light refreshments are available one half-hour prior in the Main Lobby. Lectures are led by curators or guest lecturers, and attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share thoughts and ideas, and actively participate in the learning process.
