2013 A&O Prize for Museum Exhibition is “Chagall: Love, War and Exile”

NEW YORK---The board, and the members of Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts are pleased to announce the 2013 inductee for museum exhibition of the year: "Chagall: Love, War and Exile". This exhibit of Marc Chagall’s paintings at New York’s Jewish Museum includes many images of the Jewish Jesus, a subject of great interest in recent years by museum curators as exemplified by the blockbuster impact of "Rembrandt's Jesus" of 2012. "It's a  relatively new exhibit, that has already helped with the rebuilding of the Jewish-Christian relationship" explains Gregory Disney-Britton, chairman of Alpha Omega Arts. "It increases our capacity to talk about our similarities in ways both groups have chosen to forgot." The Jewish Museum of New York's “Chagall: Love, War, and Exile,” ends in February 2, 2014.

Since 2008, Alpha Omega Arts has been surveying members about the influence of Religious Art in the United States, and awarding the ALPHA OMEGA PRIZE.
