Join us for a screening of Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art and The Szyk Haggadah (Two Short Films). Share your thoughts about the films and enjoy some popcorn!
These two short documentaries follow the life and work of famed Jewish cartoonist and illustrator Arthur Szyk. A master of miniature painting and calligraphy, Szyk brought his unmistakable style to biblical stories, literary classics, and political caricature and cartoon. Szyk was a committed activist, advocating for religious tolerance and racial equality for minorities.
Through the second film, one can follow the production process, expertise and craftsmanship behind the reprint of Szyk's beloved Passover Haggadah.
Be sure to come back at 7:30 pm to meet and enjoy an informative PowerPoint lecture by author Irvin Ungar, curator of The Szyk Society! Register HERE for this event.
