Testament in Tapestry Lecture Series 1
August 28, 2022
Location: First Congregational Church & Online
Speaker: Rabbi Sharon Mars, Senior Rabbi, Congregation Temple Israel reflecting on the Genesis tapestries at First Church
Join Columbus Museum of Art and First Congregational Church as we bring together religious leaders from around Columbus to reflect on the themes found in CMA’s latest exhibition, Raphael—The Power of Renaissance Images: The Dresden Tapestries and their Impact
as well as the Brussels Tapestries located at First Church. This series will explore how stories of faith, found in the Dresden and Brussels tapestries, handed down through the centuries connects to our lives today. Come together to gain a deeper understanding of the spiritual context in which the tapestries were created, and how that spirit is still vibrant and relevant.
Tickets are $10 per person, $5 for CMA members, and include same-day admission to the Raphael exhibition at Columbus Museum of Art. The virtual option is free and does not include admission.
Please note this lecture takes place at First Congregational Church next to the Museum, 444 E. Broad St.
