GREENVILLE, S.C. (April 8, 2014) – Now in its 17th year of telling the gospel story through breath-taking living displays of art, the annual Living Gallery at Bob Jones University has become an Upstate Easter tradition.  Programs will be in Rodeheaver Auditorium April 17-19 at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. with an additional program April 19 at 2 p.m.

You will be challenged and inspired by the drama, music and the life-size re-creations of masterpieces brought to life with live human models.

This year’s Living Gallery drama is set 500 years before the coming of Jesus Christ. Jerusalem is in ruins–conquered by the Babylonians. Only a remnant of believing Jews clings to the promise of a Messiah who will one day rescue them from bondage and free them from their sin.

“The program highlights the Old Testament prophecies of this Messiah, and illustrates their fulfillment in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ,” says Director David Eoute, Jr. “This year’s production features three new works of art, including Sébastian Bourdon’s Moses and the Brazen Serpent and Jocapo Bassano’s Crucifixion. “

Tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for children ages 6-12. Tickets may be purchased at the BJU Programs and Production box office from noon to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, online through or by calling (864) 770-1372 from noon – 5 p.m.

The Museum and Gallery at Bob Jones University is open for extended hours, 2-7 p.m., on Living Gallery performance days. Tickets to the Living Gallery provide free admission to both M&G sites at Bob Jones University and at Heritage Green on April 17-19.
