About the Event
Bible illustrations are not new, but perhaps have been underappreciated, understood merely as auxiliaries to a text. Today, appreciation for those illustrations has advanced with more understanding of their historical importance, and the future of Bible illustrations looks bright as advances in information technology have radically changed how these might develop. In this special Lunch & Learn, part of Museum of the Bible’s Bible Craftsmanship Series, Dr. David Zvi Kalman will look at some exciting recent developments in the genre's evolution and talk about what the future holds.
Save the date for the third annual Bible Craftsmanship Conference happening in Washington, DC, on May 4, 2024, where we will discuss all things art, imagery, and design in Bibles!
