The Virgin Mary in art — an online experience

The National Museum of Women in the Arts is currently hosting an exhibit of artwork depicting the Virgin Mary from several famous Renaissance and Baroque artists.

The exhibit is called Picturing Mary: Woman, Mother, Idea, and runs from Dec. 5, 2014 to Apr. 12, 2015.  If you are in the Washington, D.C. area, this might be worth a trip.

But even if you can’t see the exhibit in person, don’t worry.  The museum has provided an interactive feature on its website that allows people to view the great pieces of Marian art from the exhibit.  The feature also includes helpful descriptions of each work’s origins and significance.
