“Encounters: Inspiration & Conversion” is an exhibition that looks at encountering Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary in landscapes or settings beyond the usual Biblical locations, through Ignatian imaginative prayer. The two-part display consists of framed collages and books with covers designed by Barbara Adams Hebard, conservator at the John J. Burns Library. The books displayed in “Encounters” are inspired by the workshops that Hebard conducted for Professor of History Virginia Reinburg’s classes or reflect Boston College themes. The collages on display are inspired in part by Hebard’s experiences in a number of Ignatian-related programming at BC’s Center for Ignatian Spirituality, Church in the 21st Century Center, and Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies. “Encounters: Inspiration & Conversion” is on display in the gallery, room 203, in Carney Hall, now through the end of March. Hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. The exhibition is sponsored by the Boston College Arts Council and the Boston College Libraries. Visit the exhibit virtually, thanks to the creativity of Yifan Wang ’22.
