Let us tell them what these works of art are about and not merely tell them things about these works of art. Let us tell them the painful truth, that most of these works are about God, whom we never mention in polite society. Let us admit that if we are to offer an education in agreement with the innermost nature and eloquence of the exhibits themselves, that this will not be an education in sensibility, but an education in philosophy. Ananda Coomaraswamy, “Why Exhibit Works of Art?”1
