Opening Windows to Gernika - April 25 - May 21, 2007 Main floor, Axinn Library

The exhibition, an interactive DVD including audio interviews with survivors of the bombing, will be on view on the Main floor of the Joan and Donald E. Axinn Library from April 25th through May 21st, 2007. Matthew Ferry and Michael LaFemina, two Hofstra University Honors College students, have created a multimedia exhibition on the memory of the massacre at Gernika during the Spanish Civil War, an incident that inspired the famous Picasso painting “Guernica.”

An opening reception will be held on April 25th during common hour, 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., on the 10th floor of Axinn Library. The reception features keynote speaker Professor Sally Charnow, a performance of The Guernica Trio by Spanish composer Octavio Vazquez, a viewing of a student painting Guernica by Patrick Anglin, and an introduction to the exhibition by creators Matthew Ferry and Michael LaFemina.

The interactive DVD exhibition is sponsored by the Hofstra University Museum, Hofstra University Honors College and Hofstra Unversity Libraries.
