Description
   A multi-media artist and native of Washington, D.C., Phillip Ratner has spent many years working in sculpture, painting, etched glass, tapestry, drawing, and the graphic arts. In 1984, Philip Ratner opened The Israel Bible Museum in Safad, Israel. Since then, Ratner has spent most of his time there developing over 250 works of art on the Bible in sculpture, painting and graphics. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, the United States Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the White House, The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. In 1984, Ratner took his life's inspiration and dream, the Bible, and made it the focus of his impassioned work by founding the Israel Bible Museum in Safed, Israel.
