Featuring over 50 original works, Marc Chagall: Intersecting Traditions is a series of hand water colored etchings depicting scenes from the Old Testament. As a modern, Jewish artist, Chagall developed a unique visual vocabulary that synthesized elements from diverse cultural and artistic traditions. Because he approached the Old Testament narratives as a set of stories and recurring themes to be broadly interpreted, Marc Chagall was able to produce a deeply human and personal body of work that remains relevant today.

Beatrice and Patrick Haggerty gifted the complete portfolio of prints to the Haggerty Museum at Marquette University, Mr. Haggerty’s alma mater, in 1980. We are grateful to their son Patrick Haggerty and the Haggerty Family Foundation for the generous support in making this exhibition possible.

Mission

The mission of the Beatrice M. Haggerty Art Gallery is to enhance the cultural environment of students, faculty, and staff at the University of Dallas, and to provide outreach to the larger community.  It aims to achieve this goal by engaging the public with a range of visual art that stimulates and challenges, and which communicates the broad character of the aesthetic experience. 

Primarily a teaching gallery, the Haggerty Gallery seeks to serve the University’s Art Department by offering exhibitions of the highest quality, offering a bridge between the learning environment and the diverse range of contemporary artistic practice.  Creative thinking demands direct interaction with art that speaks through many voices.

Additionally, the Gallery has the goal of fostering interdisciplinary interaction, to further the appreciation of the rich intellectual potential of the visual world.
