Exhibition Dates: August 19 – November 6, 2020

Read More About This Exhibit

Sometimes art can show us something that cannot be seen with just our eyes, and the artist has a way of unveiling meaning and insights that escape us. Who is my Neighbor? Visual Insights from the Good Samaritan offers the viewer numerous opportunities to see this story anew, through the eyes of twenty-two artists spread across the last four centuries.

This story has inspired and challenged artists over the centuries to wrestle visually with the narrative from many different perspectives, emphasizing the popularity and importance of the story in the history of Western religious art. Both Rembrandt, as seen in his etching in this show, and Vincent van Gogh (poster of which is in this exhibition) painted iconic interpretations of this compelling parable that are etched into our collective memory.

This exhibition has gathered together etchings, lithographs, woodcuts, and paintings that give us visual insights into Jesus’ Parable of the Good Samaritan. Some focus in on finding the wounded man at the side of the road and offering him water, oil or wrapping his wounds. Other artists imagine the trip to the inn. Some take us to the inn when the Good Samaritan delivers the ailing man to the innkeeper for healing. Who Is My Neighbor? has several political cartoons or illustrations from Harper’s Weekly, PUCK, and the Salvation Army that demonstrate the parable’s societal relevance.
