That's Amanda Hellman describing for Boston Globe religion writer Michael Paulson her reactions to "The Matter of Theology: A Conversation with the Collection," an exhibit she put together as an art history grad student and an intern at the Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown, Mass.
Hellman said her assignment was to "find art from the museum's permanent collection that says something about the world's religions that could hang in the museum and would be interesting to the academic community."
