The Art for Eternity collection of Biblical art created by public school students in Russia and Ukraine is currently on display at 38th Avenue Baptist Church, located at 419 South 38th Avenue in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
The collection, owned and curated by the Kindness Foundation, includes nearly 200 pieces of original Biblical art created by public school students in Russia, Ukraine and Latvia from age 6 to 17 years old. Displaying an extraordinary level of artistic talent, the collection portrays their faith through the universal language of art.
“We are pleased to introduce several new pieces during our exhibit this year”, stated Janet Blouin, Art Exhibit Director for the Kindness Foundation. “Our Art for Eternity collection has continued to grow since ‘Christianity 2000’, a conference we helped to present in Moscow to celebrate 2000 years of Christianity.” It was at this conference that the first Biblical Art Contest was introduced, paving the way for submissions from students across Russia to illustrate a selected Bible verse during the bi-annual art contests.
The Art for Eternity exhibit of Biblical art is open to the public on Sundays from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm and on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Admission is free.
