POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — College of the Ozarks is pleased to welcome INSIRED Exhibit to its campus, April 5-20, located at The Keeter Center.

This exhibit tells the story of the greatest book ever written: the Bible, and how the most banned book in history became the world's all-time best seller. Ancient artifacts and written materials speak to visitors an understanding of how the Bible was written and preserved through the ages and how it has survived every attempt to suppress it. Working with private collectors to tell this incredible story, the exhibit showcases items rarely seen outside of a museum. Tactile activities assist visitors in the learning process, including the operation of a working replica of Gutenberg’s printing press.

The website offers a sneak peek of INSPIRED: https://www.inspiredexhibit.org/

INSPIRED Exhibit will be open to the public April 5-20: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the last entry time at 4 p.m. The Exhibit is closed on Sunday.

Groups are invited to attend, including church groups, homeschool groups, school groups, etc. Groups will reserve time for morning presentations, Monday-Saturday, 8 to 10 a.m. Individual visitors to The Keeter Center, and those dining at Dobyns Dining Room, will have an opportunity to sign up for a flight time when on site. The INSPIRED Exhibit is a free experience, and at the end of their tour, visitors will be allowed to enter a drawing for a biblical artifact with an estimated value of more than $500.

To reserve a time for a group, or for more information, call 417-690-2929.
