Enduring Images

May 4, 2015 - January 31, 2016
David Filderman Gallery


As active witnesses to or participants in an experience, or as passive observers, artists through the centuries have played a pivotal role in capturing and recording the events of our times. Drawn from the HUM’s permanent collections, this exhibition focuses on the lasting record created by an artist's visual responses to critical moments in time. The artist Yonia Fain, a Holocaust survivor considered a “witness to history,” will be represented, along with artists such as George Grosz, Käthe Kollwitz, and Jacob Lawrence

Additional exhibition funding has been provided by Astoria Bank. 

This exhibition is also made possible with funding from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
