"We're in America Now" A Visual Memoir
Wednesday, June 22, 7:30pm
St. Paul JCC
Free and open to the community

Join Fred Amram, Holocaust survivor and professor emeritus, University of Minnesota and his wife, textile artist Sandra Brick, as they delve into the ideas represented in their Gallery Walk exhibit "We're In America Now." The exhibit showcases Amram's prose relating his experiences in Nazi Germany and his coming to America alongside Brick's textile translations of Amram's writing. The couple will explore how visual and literary arts intersect, how one inspires the other, and how both are inspired by life. Together Amram's prose and Brick's textiles speak to the events and emotions of growing up as an outsider.

"We're in America Now" A Visual Memoir, is on display now through June 26. For more information please contact the St. Paul JCC at 651-698-0751.
