|From January 7 to February 7, the Center Art Gallery at Calvin College presents The Father and His Two Sons: images of the Prodigal Son from the Larry and Mary Gerbens Collection.

The exhibition features artwork in a variety of media by 30 artists, including original works based on the prodigal son parable and additional works commissioned on the parable by the Gerbens.
The 2009 Calvin Symposium on Worship, from January 28-31, will also feature related programming, as the chosen worship theme is "And he told them a parable..."For information on the collection and resources, please visit the new prodigal son website.
