RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS

"For Brothers" by Tom Sanford for Passover 2016
Our Jewish friends began celebrating Passover this week, the eight holydays (April 22-30, 2016) that recognize their deliverance from slavery in ancient Egypt. To honor Passover, a gallery in Manhattan created the exhibition "The 4 Sons" based on the ritual where participants share the story of "four sons"—one who is wise, one who is wicked, one who is simple, and one who does not know to ask. One of the paintings, "For Brothers" (above) by Tom Sanford features a colorful can of Budweiser, and represents the son who doesn’t know which question to ask—or in this case, which drink to order. Question for this week: Which of the four sons are you?
