Once Upon a Time in Lithuania & the Florida Connection- until September 30, 2012
This exhibition of paintings and
prints by English artist Naomi Alexander records the last remnants of
Jewish heritage to be found in the country of Lithuania. Alexander, who
is of Lithuanian origin, was invited to be artist in residence at the
Europas Parkas Sculpture Museum in Vilnius, Lithuania. She traveled the
country to create artwork depicting her impressions of the people and
their communities. To tell the expanded story, the Museum will make a
Florida connection using photographs and artifacts from Floridian Jews
whose origins are from Lithuania to tell the expanded story.
