The Media, Culture, and the Arts Department at The King’s College is hosting a national traveling art exhibit called “Revealed” on the fifth floor of campus. “Revealed” features 23 original pieces of contemporary art from the new book Revealed: A Storybook Bible for Grown-Ups, which traces the Bible’s story of redemption from the fall in Genesis to the new creation promised in Revelation.

To commemorate the exhibit, the MCA department will be hosting Ned Bustard, the exhibition’s curator, on campus on Friday, April 22 at 12:15 PM to talk about the show and its message. All are welcome to attend.

This art exhibit is the first official, traveling, art exhibition at King’s and has been made available to the college through Christians in the Visual Arts (CIVA), a non-profit organization founded in 1979 dedicated to exploring and nurturing the relationship between the visual arts and the Christian faith.

“Revealed” was installed at King’s by museum studies practicum students under the supervision of Dr. Henry Bleattler, associate professor of history and the humanities. Dr. Bleattler is excited to partner with CIVA on “Revealed.” “Having the ‘Revealed’ exhibition on campus provides us with two things,” Dr. Bleattler said. “First, it’s a chance for the King’s community to engage with a curated art exhibition. And second, it provides our museum studies students the opportunity to gain actual exhibition installation experience. Our students decided the layout on what was a wall of limited space. They did a terrific job. I hope to see us have one traveling show on campus each year.”

“Revealed” will be available for viewing through this summer. More information about the book that the art exhibit is based on is available here.
