Virtual Tour: Esther and the Dream of One Loving Human Family
|Date||Wed, Jan 27, 6:00pm - 7:00pm|
Tour the American Visionary Art Museum's most beloved exhibited works in the museum's history—the fabric stories of Holocaust survivor Esther Krinitz that recount her memories as a teenager in Nazi Poland. The tour is given by Esther's daughter, Bernice Steinhardt, and observes International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Through works of art and other artifacts, the tour of the exhibition "Esther and the Dream of One Loving Human Family" speaks to the effects of racism, antisemitism, and “othering” on our common humanity. The program will highlight the art works of Holocaust survivor, Esther Nisenthal Krinitz, who told her story of survival as a young teenager in a narrated series of vividly colorful stitched tapestries. Accompanying Esther’s art are works by artists from Rwanda, South Africa and Indian Country, among others.
American Visionary Art Museum founder, director, and exhibition curator Rebecca Hoffberger and Bernice Steinhardt, Esther’s daughter and co-founder of the non-profit Art and Remembrance, will introduce viewers to selected works and respond to audience questions.
