April 1

Justice Illuminated:

The Art of Arthur Szyk

The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Central Florida, 851 North Maitland Avenue,
Justice illuminated: the Art of Arthur Szyk on April 1, 2008.
There is no admission charge.

This exhibition invites the viewer to encounter Arthur Szyk’s artistic vision of a world of beauty and horror, of hope and despair, of freedom and terror – a world of times past; yet a world not very different of our own.

In the 1940s, Arthur Szyk was perhaps the most prominent artist in the United States advocating the rescue of Europe’s Jews. When Hitler came into power in Germany in 1933, the artist immediately began attacking the regime for its anti-Jewish policy, and with the outbreak of war his determination increased. In exhibitions, editorial cartoons, and illustrations for newspapers campaigns, he sought to draw America’s attention to Nazi genocide.

The exhibit is organized and circulated by The Arthur Szyk Society, Burlingame, California.

The Deutsches Historisches [German Historical] Museum, Berlin, in collaboration with the Arthur Szyk Society, recently announced the opening of a major exhibition of the artwork of Arthur Szyk. The nearly 5,000 square foot exhibition will take place in the I. M. Pei Building with an opening night press conference on Thursday, August 28, 2008, and run through Sunday, January 4, 2009.

Hours at the Center are Sunday 1pm to 4pm, Monday – Thursday 9am to 4pm and Friday 9am to 1pm. For information please call 407-628-0555. To schedule field trips please contact Mr. Mitchell Bloomer, Director of Education and Resource Teacher at Mitchell@holocaustedu.org
