Gary Vikan, director of the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, was giving a lecture at the opening of "Ethiopian Art from the Walters Art Museum" at the Museum of Biblical Art on 61st and Broadway last Thursday. He showed a photograph of himself as a Cub Scout in Minnesota 50 years ago standing before a picture of Jesus, who accidentally seems to look over his shoulder.
