A new art exhibit at the University of Dayton will explore how the Virgin Mary is perceived and represented in some Asian countries. "Ex Oriente Lux: Marian Art in Asia" runs June 26 to Sept. 8 in the Marian Library Gallery on the seventh floor of Roesch Library. It is free and open to the public 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. "The exhibit is an attempt to open our horizons to the originality of Asian Marian paintings and statuary," said the Rev. Johann Roten, S.M., director of research, art and special projects for the Marian Library/International Marian Research Institute.
