Holocaust exhibit "In Remembrance" opens Sept. 15

 


The Holocaust Center has announced the opening of its newest exhibit, In Remembrance: 75 Years After Kristallnacht. The public is invited to the opening reception and a presentation by art judge Sarah Canright on Sunday, Sept. 15 beginning at 2 p.m., at the Holocaust Center.

Eighteen artists, many of them local, have been invited to share their interpretation of that theme as part of a juried art contest. Works that have been accepted will be on display, accompanied by panels that trace the history of the rise of the Nazis and the lessons learned. Winners of the juried art contest will be announced at the event.

The exhibit will be open until Dec. 20. There is no charge for admission or for parking. The venue is handicapped accessible.

This event is being held as part of Central Florida’s Commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of Kristallnacht—the beginning of Hitler’s Final Solution. A remarkable group or arts and cultural organizations are hosting a series of events to promote respect and diversity in our society, and to empower our community to speak out against injustice. More information about the community-wide collaboration is online at http://www.Kristallnacht2013.org.
