Religion is never far from art. A new exhibition, Objects of Devotion, at the Menil, explores this persistent connection. Culled from the museum’s permanent collection and featuring many works never before on view, Objects of Devotion exhibits a wide range of devotional objects that exist at the intersection of religion and art. Exhibition curator Kristina Van Dyke presents approximately 32 objects, from a ninth century Mayan drinking vessel, to Medieval shrine figures of saints, that comment upon our past and present human need for art and religion that helps guide us through uncertainty.
