RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory Disney-Britton
During a week of raging debate over free speechThe New Yorker released a new magazine cover about "reconciliation" by Barry Blitt. The Canadian is a cartoonist and illustrator who has contributed more than eighty covers to the magazine. While others debated religious radicalism abroad, we watched the movie "Selma" where religious restraint won out over religious radicalism at home. Because in the end "love" wins, that makes "Reconciliation" (above) by Barry Blitt my NEWS OF WEEK.

In other religious art news from across the USA, and around the world:
If you are inspired by the daily art news and/or the annual prizes that A&O readers select each year, please show your support. The Alpha & Omega Project for Contemporary Religious Arts is an all volunteer effort, and it takes a lot of time, talent, and also money to produce this year-round celebration of art of the religious imagination.
