Bethlehem Beyond the Wall: Photographs Art and Artifacts 1890-2017

Everyone recognizes Bethlehem as the birthplace of Jesus, few know about the city’s rich culture. You can catch a glimpse of that richness at our new exhibition, at Manhattan College, Feb 19th – 27th, 2018. Bethlehem Beyond the Wall moves beyond myth and politics to show the city through the eyes of people who’ve lived there for centuries. The exhibition includes roughly 100 photographic images organized into discrete sections, 7 paintings (acrylic on canvas), 4 video interviews, and a series of maps to help viewers locate Bethlehem inside shifting political boundaries.

February 19-27, 2018 Open Monday – Saturday from 10 am -7 pm at Kelly 5A
