Biblical materials frequently impact attitudes and policies that affect women’s lives to this very day. By engaging us visually with an interpretation of biblical women, artists find ways to creatively examine women’s many attributes and reach an understanding of the wisdom imbedded in the texts.
Who’s Huldah? features fine art by 21 modern and contemporary artists and three 18th-century masters. The exhibition offers divergent understandings of several women and unexpected explorations of their behavior. Interpretations of biblical women lie someplace between history, myth, legend, and reality but continue to be referential as role models in our own time.
Are you one of them?
