2017 Artist of the Year for Contemporary Religious Art: Kelvin Burzon for Noli Me Tangere
This past Spring, when photographer Kelvin Burzon displayed his Noli Me Tangere (Latin) at an Indiana University art gallery, he could not have expected the positive response he would receive. This month, Alpha Omega Arts subscribers voted Cincinnati photographer Kelvin Burzon as the 2017 Artist of the Year for Contemporary Religious Art for his exploration of Christ through the lens of race and sexual orientation. Over the next few weeks, we'll share more about your subscriber choice, as well as the two jury-selected honorees: "Abdulnasser Gharem: Pause" as  Museum Exhibition of the Year, and Pope Francis as Clergy Advocate of the Year.
