Word Made Flesh exhibit opens this week


I'm so excited to see this exhibit taking shape! Curator Tim Johnson has been working with Professor Michael Hancher to create this amazing exhibit, and Exhibit Design/Project Specialist Darren Terpstra has made some gorgeous visual pieces to welcome visitors and draw them into this exhibit on the fourth floor of Wilson Library.

This exhibit is the first to appear in our offerings of events and exhibits that draw on the talents of several local institutions to note the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

Below is a description of the exhibit, and you can read more about the series of events and exhibits planned over the coming months: http://z.umn.edu/kjv400mn
