Most Highly Favored: The Life of the Virgin Mary
November 27-December 25
It would be impossible to overstate the influence that the Virgin Mary has had upon Western culture. For nearly two thousand years Mary has been the most often used name for girls. There are literally dozens of variants for her name found all around the world.  Literally hundreds of churches, colleges, universities, and seminaries have chosen “Saint Mary’s” as the name of their institution. Without a doubt she has been portrayed more than any woman in western art and music.

Mary is recognized by all Christians as the mother of Jesus, but while her role in the nativity and birth of Jesus is recalled each December at Christmas, many Christians hear little about her the rest of the year. Recently, however, there has been a growing interest in the person of Mary and the role she played in the life of Jesus and the life of the church. This exhibition has been curated to help the viewer learn and explore more about this Most Highly Favored Lady.

Most Highly Favored: the Life of the Virgin Mary reflects the varied understandings of Mary by artists rendered in the visual vocabulary of their times and places. The show is broken into four sections: Mary as Madonna, Mary in the Bible, Mary in Tradition, and Mary around the World, each depicting in visual terms an important aspect of the life of Mary. It includes works by artists from over twenty countries. The exhibit covers a wide range of media: Italian Renaissance style paintings, medieval and modern woodcuts, delicate etchings, Byzantine inspired icons, Ethiopian leather paintings, and illuminated manuscripts from Europe and the Middle East. All of these come together to offer a visual feast that inspires and communicates not only how the life of Mary has influenced the church, but also how her life still lives on in cultures around the globe.
