The museum of Biblical Art in Dallas is a 6,000 square feet art gallery and exhibition. The museum, founded by Mattie Caruth Byrd was originally named the Biblical Arts Center. After a devastating electrical fire in 2005, when over 2,000 of the museums exhibitions were destroyed, including the museums signature piece: a 20-by-124 foot oil painting entitled Miracle at Pentecost. the center was given the new name: the Museum of Biblical Art. The Museum was subsequently rebuilt and reopened some five years after that devastating blaze. The new and expanded Museum of Biblical Art reopened on Good Friday 2010.
Galleries and Exhibits
The Museum of Biblical Arts has 11 galleries of religious art including the commissioned Resurrection Mural which is a 40-by-12 feet wide mural depicting Christ's resurrection; a contemporary gallery that features sculptures, as well as African American and Hispanic religious imagery; and a Judaic gallery which includes Jewish ceremonial objects for religious Holidays.
Via Dolorosa, sculpture Atrium featuring several works by featured sculpture Gib Singleton is a centerpiece of the museum as is the on site conservation lab. The conservation lab has been the driving force behind restoring pieces that were damaged in the 2005 fire. Besides restoring art pieces, the conservation lab also holds various workshops for the public throughout the year.
