On display now: the works of Lazar Ran and other artists from the People’s Art School in Vitebsk, Belarus.  Ran, a Latvian-born artist and Holocaust survivor, was an accomplished artist in multiple media.  After his wife and children were killed by the Nazis, he created a series of lithographs which depict Holocaust themes and great thinkers from Jewish history — a dangerous act of spiritual resistance in the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic. 

On display through now through February 6, 2017.  Art is on loan from the collection of Anatoliy Bely’s Private Museum of Fine Arts in Starye Dorogi, Belarus.
