In conjunction with the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, Professor Arthur N. Gilbert, who has taught courses at the University for many years, is presenting a fine print exhibit called GRAPHIC ART OF THE HOLOCAUST which will feature important etchings, lithographs, and woodcuts by many artists who have memorialized the holocaust in print series and individual pieces. Some of the artists like Samuel Bak, arguably the greatest holocaust artist of our time, are well known but others have not received the acclaim they deserve. Many of these art works have never been seen in Denver. This exhibition is a prelude to a much larger holocaust art exhibit which will be on the DU campus in the spring.
At noon, Professor Gilbert will open the show with a brief presentation on the seven artists represented along with reflections on this project and how it is supporting holocaust survivors in Eastern Europe. Wine and cheese will be served.
This is the first of four art exhibits designed to link international relations to art and the humanities.
Already scheduled for the Cyber Cafe later in the school year are Women Must Weap Kathe Kollwitz on War and Revolution in the winter, The Apocalyptic Etchings of Erik Desmazieres in the spring and The Caricatures of James Gillray on Great Britain and France During the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Era. All of these shows are from Professor Gilbert's collection and should be of great interest to students interested in history, international affairs, fine art, as well as the general public.
