Please join us, dear friends and supporters, as we celebrate the return of the art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz to the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) in a newly designed and expanded 5-year exhibition entitled Esther and the Dream of One Loving Human Family. In honor of its return, we invite you to a free panel discussion presented by Art and Remembrance that links Esther’s Holocaust story with present day “othering” and efforts to build stronger, more resilient communities. Speaking to these issues will be:

  • Mark Hetfield President and CEO of HIAS, the 140-year old global refugee protection and resettlement agency which recently was the target of a social media attack by the Pittsburgh synagogue gunman.
  • Arjun Singh Sethi human rights lawyer and community activist, and author of American Hate: Survivors Speak Out.
  • Judy Tallwing a Native American artist active in the Baltimore community, whose work is currently included in the exhibition alongside Esther’s art.
  • Moderator, Cecile Lipworth a feminist community activist in Santa Fe, radio show host, and Art and Remembrance board member

About Art and Remembrance

Founded by the daughters of Holocaust survivor Esther Nisenthal Krinitz to honor their mother’s legacy, Art and Remembrance uses art and personal narrative to recognize individual courage and resilience, and to foster understanding and compassion for those who experience injustice. An arts and educational non-profit based in Maryland, Art and Remembrance draws on the power and passion of Esther’s art and story to educate about the Holocaust and other forms of social injustice; to open hearts and minds to the experiences of others; and to give voice to those who may yet share their stories through the healing power of art.
