NYC Biblical Art Museum to Close in June

Wednesday, 29 Apr 2015 08:11 AM

New York City's Museum of Biblical Art has announced it will close in June after failing to find a new home.

The museum, which opened in 2005, is located in the American Bible Society building in Manhattan. It has paid only $1 for the space.

The building was sold this year. The Society is moving to Philadelphia.

The museum is currently exhibiting its most successful show — sculptures by Donatello from the Duomo museum in Florence.

Officials say they've been unable to raise enough funds to relocate to another space.

The museum has no permanent collection or endowment.

It is a secular institution that examines the Bible's influence on Western art.

One of its many exhibitions looked at the ecclesiastical work of glass maker Louis Comfort Tiffany.
