Thursday, May 23rd, at 7:00 p.m. the Biedenharn Museum of Monroe will be hosting a Director's Talk for two new exhibits in the Biedenharn Bible Museum. The two exhibits', as well as the Director's Talk, topics are "Stations of the Cross" and "Noah in Traditional and Contemporary Art". Seats are limited to 15 people only and tickets are $10 a head, so call (318) 387-5281 to reserve your ticket. 

 
Stations of the Cross is generally a depiction of Jesus' path throughout the last few days of his life using art, such as paintings, mosaics, and even statues. Starting with a bronze maquette of Jesus on trial you can follow the museum's bronze sculptures all the way until his burial in the tomb. The museum also has depictions of Noah's story with the ark, some of which date all the way back to the 1500's. A main component of the Director's Talk is questioning how a historical story of near total distruction turns into a popular children's story of today.
