Illuminated Memory, a group exhibition of student artwork on Holocaust remembrance, is on display through April 13 in the Quarter Gallery at the University of Minnesota’s Regis Center for Art, 405 21st Ave. S., Minneapolis. The exhibit was organized by Kathy Carlisle, visual arts instructor at St. Francis High School in Sacramento, Calif.
A public reception will take place 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 12.
The project showcases the collective work of photography students who engaged in historical research about the Holocaust and created symbolic imagery in response to their research of an individual survivor’s story.
Students were limited to a palette of sepia or black and white photography, using only tonal value to describe the depth and breadth of their concept. The final step of the project required students to write an artist’s statement about their work, explaining their creative process and its connection to their research.
