Closing reception and guided tour
Remember the Women Institute hosted the final event of its trailblazing art exhibition that included two small artworks done in secret inside Nazi concentration camps. These drawings join works by 28 other artists, including world renowned Judy Chicago, Nancy Spero, and Boris Lurie. The 45 cutting-edge works by artists from Israel, the United States, and elsewhere address sexual violation during the Holocaust and later genocides.
