AU presents “Marc Chagall and the Bible” in Wilson Gallery

Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University will present an exhibition of Marc Chagall and the Bible. The exhibit will be held in the Jessie C. Wilson Gallery of the Krannert Fine Arts Center from Jan. 19 through Feb. 23, with an opening reception at 6-7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 26.

Marc Chagall (1887-1985) was one of the foremost visual interpreters of the Bible during the 20th Century. His vision of the Old Testament combines his Jewish heritage and modern art, giving us a rich display of symbolism and imagination.

Immediately following the opening reception from 7-8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 26, AU will host Deirdre Dempsey, associate professor of Old Testament at Marquette University, for a lecture in Hartung Hall. On Tuesday, Feb. 6 from 6-7 p.m. Dr. David Murphy, professor of history at Anderson University, will be giving a lecture on the exhibit in Wilson Gallery.

This exhibit is free and open to the public weekly in the Jessie C. Wilson Gallery of the Krannert Fine Arts Center Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., or by appointment Jan. 19 through Feb. 23.
