“Art: A Visual Language” with Laura Kruger
April 26, 2017 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Albert & Ethel Herzstein Theater
According to Laura Kruger, curator at Hebrew Union College Museum, NYC, art is created for many diverse purposes…. to identify similarities and differences, to capture a visual moment of human experience, to depict size, shape, or mood, to encourage an emotional response to be shared with others, to create a desire for a product, to freeze a moment in time in order to return to it at a later date, are but a few.  Sadly, many of us are intimidated in expressing our responses to a fine art work lest we be judged for our lack of academic knowledge or sophistication. Laura will explain visual art as a powerful means of rapid response to understanding the knowledge and point of view of the artist. The dark silhouette of a city skyline under the blanket of a star sprinkled night is a visual indicator of peace and serenity.  Yet each viewer brings with them their own life baggage, experiences of serenity and calm or anxiety and fear. It is the unspoken conversation of the viewer with the unseen artist that creates each “conversation”.  Admission is free and open to the public, but registration is required at http://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx.
