Founded in Faith: Findlay’s Religious Heritage
University of Findlay was founded in 1882 by the Churches of God in North America, now the Churches of God General Conference, as a Christ-centered College. This display shows art from picture books that reflect the University’s Protestant Christian heritage as well as some of the other religious affiliations practiced by our students today. Tomie dePaola, Tasha Tudor, and Ashley Bryan are some of the artists gracing the walls in this unit.

Some familiar and favorite pieces by Mazza illustrators Janet Stevens, Brian Wildsmith, and Iza Trapani are sure to please.
