February 2013 -- Two new exhibits are on display in Special Collections and University Archives.

Crucifixion Print

Crucifixion Meditations, prints of drawings by John Steczynski and Aileen Callahan

Crucifixion Meditations is now on display in the Prucha Reading Room through April 1, 2013.

Artists Steczynski and Callahan intended their drawings to be a meditative experience, allowing viewers to follow the stages of Crucifixion and engage in prayerful reflection.

Crucifixion Meditations has been exhibited at prestigious Jesuit universities including Creighton University, St. Louis University, and Boston College -- where both artists have taught in the Fine Arts Department. Their work can also be seen in The Crucifixion in American Art, by Robert Henkes (McFarland & Co. 2003).

Moser and Bible

The Pennyroyal Caxton Bible - King James Version, designed and illustrated by Barry Moser

The Pennyroyal Caxton Bible was designed and illustrated by a single artist, Barry Moser, taking four years of production. The Bible features 230 three-block prints, hand folded folios, specially made paper and designed types, as well as vellum binding.

Moser's illustrative goal was to portray biblical characters as ordinary people, foregoing a romanticized aesthetic that is more often used.

The pages on display will change regularly to follow the passages for Lent.

Thank you to Bruce and Suzie Kovner for their generous donation.

You may view both exhibits in the Prucha Reading Room, third floor of John P. Raynor, S.J., Library - Room 360. Regular business hours are from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday - Friday. Evening and weekend hours may be arranged by appointment. For further information, please call (414) 288-7256.
