RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Disney-Britton
"Jesus and Babies Over Mountain Pool Landscape" from the collection of Jim Shaw
I am obsessed with news of Donald Trump's latest "performance art." It's as captivating a work of appropriation as the New Museum's "Jim Shaw: The End is Near" exhibition. "Appropriation" simply means "to take or make use of without authority or right." During this third week of Advent, we are called to take and make use of the previous weeks of constraint and repentance, to recreate ourselves like a new "color of the year." That's why "Jim Shaw: The End is Near" (above) in NYC is our NEWS OF WEEK.
