Half a century is a big milestone for any institution. The Museum of Biblical Art celebrated its 50th anniversary with a Valentine Tea on Feb. 18.
The celebratory event included a program by Jeanette Korab, a supporter and artist, whose late husband, Vladimir Gorsky’s, “Tapestry of the Centuries” is on display at the museum.
In February 1966, the Museum was incorporated as a Texas nonprofit, and was founded by Mattie Caruth Byrd. The museum’s mission is to present works of art and interest that promote appreciation and knowledge of Biblical themes in the arts, humanities, and world culture.
The museum has sustained its legacy even after a massive fire in the summer of 2005. It reopened in 2010, continuing its mission with more than 30,000 square feet of exhibition and event space.
