is facilitating several brief sessions of art conversations about French impressionist Georges Rouault and the relevance of his artwork. The Wheaton Public Library is hosting these sessions on their main floor. Wheaton College art history student Stephen Westich will guide these discussions on the 20th-Century French impressionist and the relevance of his work.
Stop by the Wheaton Public Library this weekend for brief and meaningful conversation with your community. See these works of prestigious quality not ever displayed in the Sacred Arts Gallery of the BGC Museum.
Rouault’s foreboding artwork offers an opportunity to connect with neighbors on profound topics like suffering and mercy.
The exhibit and discussion sessions are free and open to all ages. Bring your insights, your questions, and your friendliness!
This event is free and open to all ages. No RSVP is necessary. The exhibit “Christ in the Darkness” is on display through May 26, 2014 in both the BGC Museum Sacred Arts Gallery and the Wheaton Public Library.
Georges Rouault was one of very few artists whose work was clearly religious while also deeply identified with the sufferings of humanity. Living and creating through two world wars, Rouault through his engraving discovers that even in the darkest places, Jesus dwells.
