Cross|Purpose, a show dealing with the Cross, is rich in variety and meaning. The time frame for works in this exhibit begins with a sixth-century coin from Constantinople, jumps to a small fifteenth-century woodcut by an anonymous artist, winds through several works from the Catholic Reformation, runs head-long into the wars and Outsider Art of the twentieth century, and ends with some remarkable contemporary pieces by living artists. Along the way viewers encounter figurative, abstract, expressionist, realist, and conceptual art by such masters as Jacques Callot, Marc Chagall, Georges Rouault, Bernard Buffet, Alfred Manessier, Jacques Villon, and Otto Dix.
