Description:

From triptychs to mixed media, the Museum of Biblical Art (MOBIA) in New York seeks to "re-contextualize Judeo-Christian images for the American public, presenting them in a way that sheds light on their original function and continued relevance." They do so with curiosity and intelligence, and their website functions as a nice complement to their brick and mortar presence in Midtown Manhattan. New visitors to the site may wish to begin by clicking through the "Exhibitions" area. Here they will find digital selections from exhibitions that profile the work of Albrecht Dürer and contemporary Christian artists. Further along, the "Programs & Education" area includes information on upcoming lectures and resources that include downloadable lectures on "What is Biblical Art?" and "Biblical Literacy in America". Additionally, this same section also includes thematic essays by art curators and religious scholars on the subject of biblically themed art. Overall, the site is quite user-friendly, and it may serve as a form of digital inspiration for a future visit to the Museum.
