Arts + Lit Lab | The Illustrated Old Testament
June 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On Sunday, June 5, 2022 at 5 PM, artist Sam Robertson will give a presentation of The Illustrated Old Testament and be joined by poets whose work reinterprets ancient religious figures and stories. The Illustrated Old Testament is Robertson’s 8-year endeavor which resulted in the creation of 257 paintings inspired by the text of the King James Old Testament. It’s published with 11:11 Press as a 520 page hardcover with all the paintings existing alongside the entire text of the Old Testament. Sam intends to sell the book door to door, dressed as a Bible salesman from the 1970’s, recording his interactions with people in a performance art piece intended to be made into a podcast. He will present a snippet of that work in progress, show and discuss 25 paintings, and answer audience questions. He will have books and prints for sale at the event.
