Visual Artist To Present Artwork at Manhattan College on April 22

Artist carolyn h. manosevitz to discuss a search for healing.

Manhattan College’s Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Education Center (HGI) will host the opening of visual artist carolyn h. manosevitz’s artwork on Tuesday, April 22 at 4:30 p.m. The exhibit is now on display in the entrance of the College’s Mary Alice and Tom O’Malley Library through June 15.

The exhibit, a search for healing consists of three-dimensional paintings on paper and paper sculptures. The artwork is inspired by manosevitz’s passion for keeping alive the memory of the destroyed shtetls (Jewish communities) of Eastern Europe, as well as the reconciliation between Christians, Jews and Muslims.

As a visual artist and educator for more than 25 years, manosevitz has spent much of that time focusing on Holocaust studies in both her art and teaching. She is currently a professor at Colorado Mountain College, and a visiting lecturer at the Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary where she teaches Spirituality After the Holocaust.

The event is free and open to the public, and will take place in the O’Malley Library Alumni Room (room 100).

Founded in 1996, the HGI Center is committed to understanding and respecting differences and similarities between people of all religions, races, ethnicities and nationalities.
