In case a couple of hours of on-screen flooding– not to mention a tidal wave of marketing — for his upcoming film Noah isn’t enough, director Darren Aronofsky has put together an art exhibition in conjunction with the biblical epic.

“Fountains of the Deep: Visions of Noah and the Flood,” running March 7 through March 29 in New York City, will include “never-before-seen works by more than 50 contemporary artists as well as comic book and street artists,” Page Six reports.



“The story of Noah and the book of Genesis has inspired artists for thousands of years,” Aronofsky told Page Six. “I wanted to see what other artists would do [with the subject matter].”

You can catch Aronofsky’s vision, featuring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, and some elaborate special effects, when it opens in theaters on March 28.
