Longest Bible Makes History
Art and Theology united in Washington D.C. Event
Simply breathtaking! That sums the unfolding of the Wiedmann Bible up pretty well. Over 400 volunteers came together on June 1st to hold this German masterpiece created by Willy Wiedmann.
Hundrets of people came to see what this event was about and were amazed by the artwork and the story. The Wiedmann Bible was unfolded for the very first time in the US at the historic Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. The event was arganized by the Museum of the Bible and Martin Wiedmann, the artist’s son.
“I would like to thank the Museum of the Bible and all the volunteers for their amazing help and outstanding engagement. It was an incredible experience,” says Martin Wiedmann. “You can’t put it into words. To see my father’s work in this historic place. The people’s reaction was overwhelming. Some even had tears in their eyes. That only encourages me to continue my mission.”
But what are we writing… see for yourself!
