This place may be small by comparison to the heavy-hitters in downtown DC, but the purpose makes a big statement: to glorify God through contemporary art. Philip Ratner brushes off the beloved Old Testament characters and gives them a modern, sometimes whimsical, deeply symbolic, look that keeps you exploring the piece. In addition, there are many textile and needlepoint pieces by other artists that are hung to complement his works. My 12-year-old daughter immediately suggested the appropriateness of the Ratner Museum for a school field trip, demonstrating its broad appeal. Try it. You'll be blessed.
