Kindness Foundation Displays Biblical Art Exhibit At WCU

Posted: Updated:

HATTIESBURG, Miss. -  The artwork of young children from Russia and the Ukraine will be on display for another week at the Sarah Gillespie Museum of art on William Carey University's campus.

The "Art for Eternity" exhibit is sponsored by the Kindness Foundation.

All of the artwork featured is from kids from ages 5 to about 17.

WCU officials say the children are told stories from the bible,  And they paint images based on their interpretation of what they learned.

Some of the paintings in the exhibit are about Daniel in the Lion's Den, and Jesus being born in a manger.

"The children are told bible stories and then they paint the stories of what they've been told based on what they think it will look like and it's so impressive their use of color and perspective is truly sophisticated," said WCU curator Pam Shearer.

The exhibit was scheduled to end today but  Shearer said it has gotten a lot of attention and will stay up for another two weeks.
