"Honoring Mary". CUA Presentations to Coincide with the "Picturing Mary" Exhibition in Washington DC.
Update 3/25: Great show, workshop and conference (below). Recommended is a visit the the National Gallery of Art and the Medieval and Renaissance sections as a compliment to this exhibition.
The Exhibition book was sold out. Ask to be put on the wait list in the gift shop. Two other books, both very good, are still available there:
Art and Prayer: The Beauty of Turning to God (Mount Tabor Books) Hardcover – October 1, 2014 by Timothy Verdon
Mary Hardcover – September 1, 2009 by Martina Degl'Innocenti
The Pieta, a topic (and statue) that came up more than once, would be worth posting on in the future. It will take time to sort through various details.
Some photos at the bottom of this post.
