Work of National Artist Ben Golden Featured in Seton Hill’s Harlan Gallery
Seton Hill University’s Harlan Gallery will present an exhibit showcasing the work of artist Ben Golden, titled “Ben Golden: Remnants and Remembrance, Berlin 2005” October 1-29. A reception will be held Thursday, October 1, from 4-7 p.m. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
The exhibit consists of a selection of photographs Golden took in Berlin in 2005, documenting the "remnants" of the Holocaust in that city. Golden has donated two large bodies of photographic work to Seton Hill and the National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education. Docent tours can be arranged.
“Berlin today is so aware of its horrendous history that everywhere there are remnants, reminders, memorials, and displays to educate today’s Germans as to what their ancestors did. Berlin is also striving to recapture its intellectual and artistic past. It is reflected all over the city, in its most remote sections,” said Golden of Berlin in 2005.
“Ben Golden: Remnants and Remembrance, Berlin 2005” is being held in conjunction with The Ethel LeFrak Holocaust Education Conference, October 25-27. For more information about The Ethel LeFrak Holocaust Education Conference, visit https://alumni.setonhill.edu/Document.Doc?id=56 to view a brochure.
