Following the American Bible Society’s $300 million sale of its headquarters at 1865 Broadway, long-time tenant the Museum of Biblical Art is looking for a new home.

Unlike the American Bible Society, which is leaving pricey New York City for Philadelphia, the Museum of Biblical Art – or Mobia – plans to remain in the city, according to the New York Times.

Mobia plans to remain in its current space until the end of its upcoming exhibition, “Sculpture in the Age of Donatello: Renaissance Masterpieces From Florence Cathedral,” which will feature the works of Donatello, Filippo Brunelleschi, Nanni di Banco and Luca della Robbia. The show is scheduled to open on February 20 and run through June 14.

“This year, 2015, Mobia is taking its final steps to independence, operating without American Bible Society’s financial support,” a Bible Society spokesperson said. “It is American Bible Society’s understanding that Mobia will remain in New York, though not in its current location.” [NYT] Christopher Cameron
