Luther’s Journey: Experience the History 

Gustafson Fine Arts Center, campus of Bob Jones University

For adults and students (6th-12th grade)

This focus exhibition features paintings from M&G’s internationally respected Old Master collection.  Tour the exhibit and take a closer look at the man, Martin Luther, by understanding more about his life’s circumstances in the 1500s—a plague circling Europe, the scarcity and inaccessibility of books, the normalcy of illiteracy, and the exacting authority of church and state. Luther’s life journey reminds us that ordinary people can be used by God to inspire extraordinary and enduring change.
