This is the first of a cycle of three exhibitions arranged by the Renaissance Society as part of the annual Festival of Religious Art, celebrating the religious impulse in various ways. It will be installed at 333 N. Michigan Ave. The exhibition at Weiboldt Hall, the University of Chicago, which opens April 7, is a showing of "Old and New Masters of Religious Art," and illustrates the identity of spiritual expression through the ages. "The Guelph Treasure," shown under the auspices of the Renaissance and Antiquarian Societies at the Art Institute of Chicago, beginning March 31, presents a superb group of medieval objects, created at a time when the religious spirit was closely united with eccesiastical purpose.

During the season of the exhibitions, programs of fine religious music will be given by musical organizations and choirs in co-operation with the Renaissance Society. The University Chapel will co-operate with an Easter Pageant on Easter afternoon, and several other important programs. There will also be lectures on religious art and ecclesiastical architecture. All musical organizations that are disposed to join in the spirit of this season are cordially invited to arrange appropriate programs and take part in the Festival of Religious Art.
