The William H. Hannon Library’s spring exhibition in the Department of Archives and Special Collections draws on several years of student work from Cecilia González-Andrieu's “Meeting Christ in Faith and Art” course. Is Jesus a cultural icon, an overused symbol, a historical person, a cosmic phenomenon? How is it that art can elicit so many differing interpretations of the Christ figure? This collection examines the production and interpretation of creative works as a means to explore the many meanings and understandings of Jesus as Christ.
