Cross/Purpose exhibition – Lillian Davis Hogan Galleries


The Lillian Davis Hogan Gallery is hosting an exhibit titled Cross/Purpose, a collection of 49 works of art exploring the image, symbolism, and event of Christ’s crucifixion. Beginning with a 6th century coin, the works represent centuries of interpretation and reflection on this pivotal moment in history. Renowned artists such as George Rouault, Marc Chagall, Otto Dix and Jacques Villon are represented in the exhibit.

The gallery is open daily from 9am to 8pm.

These works come to us as a traveling exhibition from CIVA, Christians in the Visual Arts.
