The Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts is dedicated to promoting artists exploring religious ideas, and especially LGBT artists of color. We are building a collection of paintings, sculpture, film, photography, drawings, and prints unlike anywhere else.
The 2019 acquisitions were: Anila Quayyum Agha's "Walk in My Shade 2" (2019); Josh Betsey's "SNoël,SNoël," (2019); and Alicia Zanoni's "The Opposite of Hesitant" (2019). Limited edition acquisitions included Robert Pruitt's "Benin Head" (2014) and Nick Cave's "Untitled" (2015) from the 18-piece Exquisite Series from the Tamarind Institute. Finally, the project also acquired two ceramic plates: Kehinde Wiley's ;"Mara Mbaye II" (2014), a porcelain open edition; and Hank Thomas Willis's "Plate" (2019), a ceramic limited edition.
