It seems that every time I post I’m explaining the infrequency of our updates. But I’m pleased to say it’s just because we have been so busy.
The “Art and the Religious Imagination” conference was well received. Pamela Ambrose and Gerald Bolas gave distinct but complementary reflections on the way art museums can present the religious art in their collections in innovative ways. Charles Bouchard used the works in Good Friday to examine theological thought on the question of human suffering. (Sadly, Kevin Burke had to cancel due to a family emergency, but we anticipate inviting him back next spring.) A dynamic question-and-answer session followed, with some excellent insights from audience members.
A few pictures are included below, and we’ll try to have summaries of the talks available soon.
In the meantime, we are preparing for Good Friday on Good Friday. MOCRA’s Easter weekend hours are:
|Friday, April 10, 2009 (Good Friday)||9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.|
|Saturday, April 11, 2009||11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m|
|Sunday, April 12, 2009 (Easter)||closed|
To our readers observing Pesach or Holy Week, we wish you a season of peace and holiness.
