Come to the Table exhibit (Bostic, Devine, Bohlig)

Come to the Table

Come to the Table, a traveling exhibit by Christians In the Visual Arts (CIVA), features 35 carefully selected works including everything from historical pieces by Albrecht Durer, to modernist work by Jasper Johns and Sadao Watanabe, to fresh contemporary pieces created by CIVA member artists.

This exhibit, executed in a variety of media, celebrates both the rich community gathered at the Table of Fellowship and the privilege of meeting with God at the Table of Communion. From Abraham entertaining angels, to the Christ’s Last Supper with his disciples, to the great Marriage Feast of the Lamb at the end of time, the table is a rich biblical metaphor. Indeed, the promise of Revelation 19 is that human history will culminate around a table where the people of God are all present. God’s Table is a place of welcome, justice, abundance, and worship.

Also see workshop B26: "Come to God's Table”: A Philosopher's Reflections on Visual Depictions of Hospitality, Justice, Hope, and the Lord's Supper, by Nicholas Wolterstorff.
