Maltz Museum Introduces Kids to the Work of Artist Marc Chagall

Sun 7/15 @ 1-4PM

The work of Jewish artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985) has depth and is rich with meaning but it is also accessible and appealing. It’s work kids can appreciate, while their parents can marvel at the fact that this artist survived the pogroms on the late 19th century, WWI, the Russian Revolution and the Nazi occupation of France, moving from his birthplace in Belarus, to St. Petersburg, Moscow, Berlin, Paris, New York and the French Riviera. In the process, he absorbed ideas from a multitude of art movement, while maintaining a Jewish cultural identity.

Curator Sue Koletsky will talk about his life and the original works on display at the Maltz Museum in this family program. Afterward, inspired visitors can draw chalk art of their own on the sidewalk outside the Maltz.

It’s free but space is limited for the lecture. Register here.
