Artist Talk | Between the Lines

Thursday, August 25, 2016 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Both Roy Strassberg and Bunny Burson’s works pull from memories and research of the Holocaust. As first generation American Jews with family stories from this haunting time, Strassberg and Burson’s marks contain a raw and arresting energy. Reading between those lines, viewers may investigate the deeply personal stories that begin to rise to the surface of the works. Here, marks become memories in service of tikkum olam – a Jewish concept translated as acts which might repair the world.

Between the Lines is part of the St. Louis Arts Experience, a citywide arts collaboration from September 30 through October 16. Discover your passion at 

Funding for this exhibition is provided by Nancy and Ken Kranzberg, Sheila Greenbaum and Gary Wasserman, JoAnn and Ted Sanditz, Anabeth and John Weil of Pershing Place Foundation.
