Thesis Statement

Fashioned of silver, gold, gems, wood, earth, and bone, the objects gathered for this display are material evidence of human yearning for connection with the spiritual and divine. Inspired by pieces found in the permanent collection of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Art Collection gifted to the university in the 1980s by the Bolles Rogers and Van Dusen Rogers families – the exhibit seeks to contextualize and explore the role of sacred objects in world religions.
