A refreshing turn in the world of art...

A new art museum has opened in the heart of secular New York City. What makes it particularly notable is that it's the Museum of Biblical Art, where religious art is displayed respectfully, rather than sacriligiously in past museums (a couple of notable pieces come time mind...). Here, a revival of religious art is exhibited to give people inspiration as they browse. As Rebecca Hoffberger, director of Baltimore's American Visionary Art Museum (where one of my friends got married, BTW) said "If museums are only repositories to enshrine objects, they're mausoleums. Looking at the source of inspiration is the most valid path." Hopefully, it will bring a breath of fresh air to the world of modern art.
