Focus @ First:  “Embodying Faith: Imagining Jesus Through the Ages” Birmingham Museum of Art

For centuries, artistic production in Europe, and elsewhere, was dominated by Christian themes. This religious art served many purposes, from embellishing altars and aiding in private devotion, to educating the faithful and acting as propaganda either for or against the church during the Protestant Reformation. A BMA curator will show examples and talk with us about this wonderful current exhibit.
