MOCRA in the Media - 2016

Miserere et Guerre receives widespread coverage in syndicated article
Religion News Service, an online news source, published an article about MOCRA's presentation of Miserere et Guerre on February 24, 2016. "Can the greatest religious painter of the 20th century make a comeback?" asks former TIME religion editor David Van Biema. Using MOCRA's exhibition as a springboard, Van Biema explores why French artist Georges Rouault (1871-1958) is less known among audiences today than he was just a few decades ago, but also why works such as Miserere et Guerre make him a compelling voice with particular relevance for our current social and political challenges. The article has been republished in online or print versions of numerous outlets, including the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Kansas City Star, The Washington Post, Deseret News, America, and Christian Century.
