2-hour delay 11/16

LVC will open at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, 2018.

Five major religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, provide the focus of this exhibition exploring sacred art. An array of objects such as gold Jewish Torah finials, ancient Buddhist Gandharan sculpture, a Christian Russian Hodegetria icon, an Islamic 17th century leaf of the Koran, and a 10th-11th century Hindu stele representing Vishnu are some of the items included. This variety of work representing themes of image, text, and ritual provides a lens with which to explore these unique traditions and the ways in which they intersect.
