Saint John's Bible and Art Cislo exhibits
In tandem with the "Jesus Christ Superstar" performance, the university will host an exhibition of reproduction prints of the Saint John's Bible and works by Art Cislo in the Lupke Gallery at the North Campus through April 3. In 1998, Saint John's Abbey and University commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a hand-written, hand-illuminated Bible. The Saint John's Bible is a work of art and a work of theology. A team of artists coordinated by Donald Jackson in Wales and a team of scholars in Central Minnesota brought together the ancient techniques of calligraphy and illumination with an ecumenical Christian approach to the Bible, rooted in Benedictine spirituality.
The result is a living document and a monumental achievement. The gallery is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (closed over lunch). For more information contact 260-399-7700, ext. 8001.
