The Wiedmann Bible Foundation Promotes World’s Largest Painted Bible
A new foundation has been launched with the aim to artfully engage people with the Holy Scriptures through artistic expressions.
The Wiedmann Bible Foundation wants everyone to experience it in new ways, transcending all languages. They do so through the only existing visual narrative that depicts the complete Old and New Testament. It is also the longest illustrated Bible in the world.
The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization will honor the artist’s legacy by publishing his masterpiece in all forms.
Willy Wiedmann painted a Bible consisting of 3,333 illustrations, which has a total length of almost one mile (1,2 km). The Foundation consists of Martin Wiedmann (Founder and Chairman), who is also the son’s artist, Carolyn D. Rossinsky (Founder and President), Frank Wohlfahrt (Founder and Board Member), as well as Directors and Members of the Board Allen Quine and Dale Brantner (both formerly senior members of the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C.).
