Reception for Samuel Bak  

A gift to Wabash that honors Stephen Bowen ’68, Creation was donated to the College by Michael and Gigi Pucker, long-time friends of the Wabash Board Chairman. The presentation of the painting coincided with the opening of the exhibit "The Art of the Question: Paintings by Samuel Bak," which will run in the Eric Dean Gallery for five weeks. Creation was made in 1999. Dean of the College Gary Phillips says the painting "asks us to consider the relationship between creation and destruction. He [Bak] asks us to imagine a world where the divine is present only in absence."
