Now is the time to discover what the world sees. "First Impressions last! What does yours say about you? You have seven seconds to make a first impression and what happens in those first seven seconds will de- cide if someone wants to get to know you, or not What to say and when to say it, is more important than most realize," says Fowler Dannie G.

Dannie Fowler Dr. Yudit Greenberg, Cor- nell Professor of Religious Studies and director of the Jewish Studies Program at Rollins College, has an- nounced that "Reading the Bible Aesthetically" will be the first lecture in the 2012-13 academic year. This lecture is presented by Dr. Ena Heller, the Bruce A. Beal director of the Cornell FineArts Museum at Rollins College. This event . is open to the entire com- munity. This lecture and slide presentation will tackle the question of how the Bible-- the most influential book in Western culture--ties into the world of visual art. It is safe to say that the Bible has shapedWester~ culture more than any other book. The world's all-time best-seller provides the key to literary symbolism (from Shakespeare to Melville to Toni Morrison), music (from Bach to Britten to Pete Seeger), popular culture (from "Pulp Fiction" to New Yorker cartoons) and--the topic of this talkmvisual art. One can hardly be visually literate without some knowl- edge of the Bible. So. how do we read the Bible aestheti- cally? What is the connection between word and image in the Jewish tradition, and how | did words get translated into images through the centu- ries? At the same time, how did the same images change once they became Christian? While it is well-known that Christianity incorpo- rated the Hebrew Bible into its tradition, and with it the stories, images and symbols contained in its pages, what is less known is the ongo- ing exchange between the artistic traditions of Judaism and Christianity, and the often surprising fact that the exchange goes bothways. Just as Christian artists borrowed from the existing Jewish tradi- tion. Jewish artists sometimes used Christian models. This presentation focuses on some poignant examples from the early centuries of the Com- mon Era to medieval Europe and 20th century painting. This is Heller's first year at Rollins College. Prior to this position, she was the found- ing director of the Museum Qf Biblical Art in New York. Recognized for her accom- plishments at MOBIA, Heller received the Religion and the Arts Award from the American Academy of Religions. She has served as a lecturer in the Visual Arts Department at the College of the Holy Cross, as well as at the Cloisters Mu- seum. She has also taught as an adjunct professor at Manhattanville College and served as research assistant at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Through her experi- ence, Heller has been able to combine her love of teaching with the joy of interacting with art. The lecture, followed by a reception, will take place at 7 ~o.m. Nov. 8 in the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, 1000 HoltAve Building No. 303. Parking directions: Visitors can park in the Suntrust Parking Garage.
