Visions of the Apocalypse

06:30 PM - 08:30 PM

Description:

The Apocalypse and apocalyptic texts of the Bible illuminate history’s destiny and heaven’s cosmic perspective. No wonder such illumination has generated amazing artistic interpretations. The Bible’s apocalyptic texts set revelation before today’s world. Using the mesmerizing exhibit The Tapestry of Light as a springboard, Museum of the Bible and the Washington Theological Consortium are gathering top scholars to discuss the Apocalypse in the Bible and in contemporary art. Join the speakers on a tour of the The Tapestry of Light, a profound illumination of the Revelation of John, a round-table discussion with slides, a light reception and a pop-up exhibit of art from seminaries in the Washington area. Artists include Deborah Sokolove, Amy E. Gray, Thomas Xenakis, and Peggy Parker.
