great experience – I hadn't been to the museum since its redesign and was really blown away. The Illuminated Manuscripts exhibition was beautiful and the descriptive plaques by each piece made me feel like I had a docent there with me explaining each piece. The other exhibits were great as well. Looking forward to Masterpiece replayed!!!
Night at the Museum - Best show in Phoenix – During a recent trip to the Phoenix Art Museum I got the chance to see the Illuminated Manuscripts Exhibition which was absolutely astounding. The modern painted rendition of the bible was absolutely beautiful. I have to admit though the area of this exhibition that stole the show for me was the James Melikian Collection. This serious collection of ancient bibles and their beautiful metal covers were something I have never seen before much less even knew existed.
Illuminated Manuscripts at the Phoenix Art Museum – Forget the religious aspect of this show - the craftsmanship and artistry is worth it. The work is so good that you'll probably never have a chance again it see it like this.
Prepare to be amazed - Illuminated Manuscripts exhibition – Overall, an awe inspiring exhibition. The exhibition highlights the more than 1300 year history of the book arts, with the contemporary Saint John's Bible serving as the capstone of the exhibition - featuring nearly 50 page openings from the first hand written Bible in over 500 years. The comprehensive collection of ancient manuscripts from both the Walters Museum and the private James Melikian collection appropriately "bookend" this must-see exhibition. Don't miss it!
A pleasant surprise at Illuminated Manuscripts show! – Visually stunning and not what I expected at all. A definite treat. Pleased to see the inclusion of many different faiths in the creation of the Saint John's Bible.
