Named for the family who founded U.S. arts and crafts retailer Hobby Lobby, The Green Collection is the world's largest private collection of rare biblical texts and artifacts. Scholars have scoured the world to assemble the more than 40,000 biblical antiquities that today comprise the collection. Since its debut in 2011, The Green Collection "has created a buzz" (Fox News) and has been called "a sampler of Jewish, Roman Catholic and Protestant treasures" that span from ancient times to the digital age (USA Today). Hobby Lobby President Steve Green oversees the expansion and outreach of the collection and will serve as chairman of the board for a D.C.-based national museum that will be the collection’s permanent home.
