Internationally celebrated artist and Jewish scholar Archie Rand brings a unique blend of expressionistic comic book style and loosely painted imagery rendered in vivid tones to familiar stories from the Hebrew Bible. Visually stunning and thoughtful, the works are at the same time irreverent and serious, adding fresh perspective to stories that have shaped Western civilization. Curated by Samantha Baskind, Professor of Art History at Cleveland State University. Exhibition continues through June 30, 2020.
