RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF YEAR

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Disney-Britton
Donald Jackson works on The Saint John's Bible
A&O subscribers voted to recognize three honorees for their work in advancing inter-religious dialogue across America. Their 2015 work advanced inter-religious learning, appreciation, and humility. The Alpha Omega Prize - Artist of the Year 2015 is Donald Jackson, artistic director of "The Saint John's Bible." Additionally, A&O's Clergy Advocate of the Year is Pope Francis; and the Museum Exhibition of the Year is The Jewish Museum's "Masterpieces & Curiosities: Nicole Eisenman’s Seder." That's why Donald, Francis, and Nicole are our NEWS OF YEAR.
