SAMUEL BAK: Survival and Memory

Opens Wednesday, February 10

For seven decades, Samuel Bak’s art has communicated his experience as a Holocaust survivor, while expressing universal truths about human frailty through deeply-layered symbols and rich historical references. This spring, the Fleming Museum presents Samuel Bak: Survival and Memory  featuring a selection of Bak’s works, from the drawings and watercolors he did immediately after the war, to the complex allegorical paintings he has created throughout his career. 

“Samuel Bak’s powerful images are both beautifully painted and emotionally resonant,” says Fleming Museum Curator Andrea Rosen. “We’re so pleased to be sharing the artist’s celebrated work with a new audience here in Vermont, with his first show ever in the state.”
