Exhibit Opening Reception - Unraveling Revelations: Decoding the Prophetic Charts
(Arts and Culture)

In the early nineteenth century, a man named William Miller, after careful study, came to the conclusion that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, spoken of in both the Old and New Testaments, was imminent. And, in fact, his careful calculations revealed the year this was to take place as 1843.

On display are eight of the 36 charts from Aurora University's Jenks Memorial Collection of Adventual Material. The charts were visual aids used at church services and camp meetings to teach about the prophecies, which Miller believed were about to come to fruition. This exhibit, curated by students in the MST2200 Museum Exhibitions course, also includes photographs, letters and scrapbooks from the collection.

The exhibit will be on display Friday, October 5 - Friday, December 14.

Attend a special lecture by Dr. Susan Palmer, Jenks Collection Curator, on Saturday, October 6 9:30 a.m. at Perry Theater.
