This month we feature an article about a current exhibit at the Norton Museum of Art.  This wonderful museum is a real gem with galleries of treasures for all tastes.  When you visit, don't forget to see the Dale Chihuly Glass Ceiling. 
May weather is delicious, the bird nests are beginning to empty, and the car trailers keep coming!
Best regards,

Roman Vishniac: Selections from The Vanished World
Thru July 26, 2009
Roman Vishniac was an accomplished Russian-American photographer, biologist, art collector and historian whose work is currently on view in the exhibition Roman Vishniac: Selections from The Vanished World. The Norton Museum recently acquired Vishniac's portfolio The Vanished World, which is one of the only pictorial documentations of Jewish culture in Central and Eastern Europe during the period just prior to the Holocaust: the mid to late 1930s. The exhibition is comprised of twelve images that show daily life in the urban ghettos and small farming communities (shtetls), and document the economic and social restrictions being placed upon Jewish people while the photographer was living in Germany in the 1930s. Vishniac took over 16,000 photographs, hoping to salvage a memory of the people and culture that he knew Hitler was on a mission to eradicate. A trained scientist unable to save the lives of his people, Vishniac set out to save their memory. Only 2,000 images are known to have survived. Vishniac hoped that these images would enable others "to envision a time and place that are worthy of remembrance."
