Faith and Art: Clergy Day at the Museum

June 2, 2019 @ 2:30 pm

Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528). Joachim and the Angel from the Life of the Virgin, 1504. Woodblock print. Reading Public Museum, Reading, PA.

You are invited to view the Albrecht Durer collection, an exhibit including his complete Passion series, with the guidance and explanation of the meaning of the pieces by Monsignor J. Bruce Jarboe, pastor of St. Ann Roman Catholic Church in Hagerstown with input from the Jewish perspective from Rabbi Ari Plost.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about art, history and faith, with a comfortable atmosphere to ask questions about the stories depicted in these acclaimed works.

Event is free and open to the public, hosted by the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in partnership with the Hagerstown Area Religious Council (HARC).
