Exhibit: Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered

Thu, February 1Sun, March 312018-02-012019-03-31 | Armstrong Auditorium14400 S. Bryant Rd, Edmond, OK 73034
“Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered” is an archaeological exhibition that will enable visitors to discover the... “Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered” is an archaeological exhibition that will enable visitors to discover the history of ancient Judah’s most famous king-prophet pairing—a story which illuminates how Jerusalem escaped annihilation at the hands of King Sennacherib’s Assyrian army at the end of the 8th century B.C. Items on display will include nearly three dozen artifacts from the time of King Hezekiah, including the recently discovered royal seal impressions of King Hezekiah and Isaiah from the Ophel excavations, royal Judean clay vessels, and weapons used during the siege of Lachish. The exhibit will also feature key Assyrian history and will include replicas of such artifacts as the famous Annals of Sennacherib Prism (aka Taylor/Jerusalem/Oriental Prism), various other Assyrian inscriptions, and the famous Assyrian wall reliefs. “The stars of the show are the Hezekiah and Isaiah bullae,” said Brad Macdonald, curator of the exhibit. “But the supporting cast – the arrow heads from Lachish, Sennacherib’s prism, the Assyrian wall reliefs – is also pretty extraordinary. We will use maps, illustrations, interactive aids, and storyboards to connect all these articles and create what we believe will be a unique and moving experience.” Discovered by archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar of Hebrew University, the clay seals, called bullae, were found only one yard apart on the Ophel at the foot of the Temple Mount. According to their inscriptions, the seals belong to King Hezekiah of Judah, who ruled in the 8th century B.C. and Isaiah, possibly “the prophet.” “This is truly a historic exhibition. Artifacts from the Assyrian siege of Jerusalem have been exhibited previously, but these exhibits have never included the seals of King Hezekiah and Isaiah,” Macdonald said. “Visitors would have to travel to London, Jerusalem, Istanbul and Chicago to see everything on display. Here we’ve brought them all together in one place.” Edmond’s Herbert W. Armstrong College assists Dr. Mazar’s Temple Mount Ophel excavations and helped uncover both the Hezekiah and Isaiah, and now has the honor of hosting the world premiere."

In 1967 when the musical “Hair” was first performed, the artworld in America was rapidly changing. Genres like Pop Art, Optical Art, and Perceptual Art were gaining popularty. Jason Wilson, a contemporary Perceptual artist from Tulsa, OK exhibits his Op Art-themed pieces reminiscent of 1960s artists such as Frank Stella and Richard Anuszkiewicz. These paintings, inspired by his grandmother’s quiltwork, take the eye into the transcendental world of highly constructed designs and color-field shapes. The exhibit is located in the Krottinger Family Gallery, a space located in the hallway leading into the newly renovated dressing rooms, classrooms and theater spaces of  Mitchell Hall. The gallery exhibits work from UCO Art and Design alumni and intends to be a space that celebrates the continuum of UCO artists and designers who have created significant work for the Oklahoma City metro and beyond.
