Discovery Center Mayborn Museum Complex
Sacred Texts, Holy Images Now Open Through 

November 28
Sacred Texts, Holy Images
Rouault's Miserere and Chagall's Bible Series


Sacred Texts, Holy Images features works by two of the most important religious artists of the twentieth century, Georges Rouault and Marc Chagall. Museum visitors have a unique opportunity to view two series that have never been shown together.


The opportunity to exhibit these two remarkable collections is made possible by the generosity of the Mark Foster Foundation, which has established Fine Arts in the Academy™ to advance the serious study of art, history, and Western tradition.


Admission to the museum (includes Sacred Texts, Holy Images) is $6 for adults, $4 for children and $5 for seniors. Museum and exhibits are free to all museum members and Baylor University students.
