Faces of the Holocaust Art Show

Friday, May 25, 2018 from 8:00am to 4:00pm


The Jewish Community Center is holding the exhibit "Faces: Holocaust" in the meeting room. The artists are from SUNY Broome, who draw faces of marginalized and overlooked people for the exhibition series "Faces." The exhibit at the JCC is the second in the series.
The exhibit showcases a series of classical realist larger than life-size portrait drawings rendered in charcoal, pencil and mixed media along with life stories that represent survivors, as well as those who perished during the Holocaust, SUNY Broome Associate Professor Patricia Evans’ Beginning Drawing students seek to tell the story of sacrifice and struggle, and to make a difference through form and content. Part of their project was researching the history of Holocaust survivors and non-survivors, including their birth and death records, culminating into a lesson on social and cultural history.
