Art exhibit explores legacy of the Holocaust

View the Festival of the Arts Calendar

Photo by Deborah Lefkowitz - Light Chambers IIIFilmmaker and visual artist Deborah Lefkowitz shares images from her award-winning documentary about the legacy of the Holocaust at an exhibit at California State University, Sacramento's Robert Else Gallery, March 18 - April 19.

Her exhibit, "Light Chambers III," is part of the University's 10th annual Festival of the Arts. More than 20,000 people attended last year's various dance, design, art, poetry, theatre and music events and this year's festival promises to gather even bigger crowds with an exciting 10th anniversary schedule.

"Light Chambers III" uses shafts of light, sculpture and photography to create an exhibit that reflects on society's collective and personal losses. It features excerpted images from her film, "Intervals of Silence: Being Jewish in Germany."

The film is based on the artist's conversations with more than 150 residents of a small town in Germany. It examines Jewish life in present-day Germany and the legacy of the Holocaust for both Jewish and non-Jewish Germans. Lefkowitz is currently an Artist's Fellowship recipient from the California Arts Council.

The Else gallery is open from noon - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday. An artist's reception is at 5 p.m., Monday March 18 and Lefkowitz will talk about her art at 5 p.m., Wednesday, April 10, in the University Union Hinde Auditorium. For more information about the exhibit call (916) 278-6166.
