“The Boy in the Drawing”

March 29, 2012 through July 31, 2012
Laurie & Milton Boniuk Resource Center and Library

“The Boy in the Drawing” features acclaimed artist Samuel Bak’s personal interpretations as a child of the Holocaust. Considered a child prodigy, his early artwork demonstrates a youthful but poignant outlook of the environment that surrounded Bak. The exhibit includes reproductions of three pieces: “Self-Portrait,” “In the Street” and “Mother and Son,” which Bak drew while at the Landsberg Displaced Person’s Camp. This exhibit is presented as a companion to the larger exhibit of Bak's work "Returning: The Art of Samuel Bak" on view in the Mincberg Gallery through Aug. 12, 2012.
