HMLC: Fabric of Survival Exhibition Opening & Lecture
November 3, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:45 pm
Over the past decade, several hundred thousand visitors to more than a dozen museums in the U.S. have been able to experience first-hand the extraordinary art and story of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz. More than 40 years after the Holocaust, Esther depicted her remarkable story of survival through a stunningly beautiful series of 36 fabric collage and embroidery panels. Untrained as an artist, she depicted in vivid color and exquisite detail one young girl’s eye witness account of the war, scenes of tragedy and trauma juxtaposed with the exquisite beauty of the natural surroundings. It is as if nothing escaped Esther’s attention, or her memory.
