RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory Disney-Britton
The Museum of Biblical Art in New York, winner of the 2014 Alpha Omega Prize, will close its doors permanently in June due to funding. Too religious for arts donors and not religious enough for donors to religious causes, the museum struggled to find its niche. Since 2005, the museum has paid $1.00 a year to rent its Manhattan space but in February the landlord sold the building forcing this sad decision. The current hit of an exhibition, "Sculpture in the Age of Donatello" will be its final show, and that's my NEWS OF WEEK.
