Gazing Skyward, to Heaven

images from upcoming exhibitions

“Audubon at Oakley: Louisiana Selections from Birds of America” and “The Pathway of Promise: 1500 Years of Religious Texts and Moral Guidebooks” open on December 1, 2008 and run through February 28, 2009. Each exhibition showcases treasures from our holdings, including John James Audubon’s original pencil sketch studies and a variety of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim religious texts from the Middle Ages to the present.

While the two exhibitions focus on very different subjects, both examine devotion to and exploration of the natural and spiritual world. Each, in its own way, invites us to gaze skyward, to heaven.
