Gallery Talk, Drumming to Make a Difference, SUSN Reception

Gallery Talk and Afternoon Reception with artist, Fay Grajower on July 21, 2011 at 2:00 pm.  Light refreshments will be served and the event is FREE and open to the public.  Call 727.820.0100, extension 236 to RSVP. 

Boston artist, Fay Grajower, provides insight to viewers about the second generation of Holocaust survivors through her art. The artist uses her acquired memories of her mother’s and siblings’ experiences to work through issues of the past. Grajower commonly uses symbols and metaphors in her colorful, mixed-media artworks.

 

Fay Grajower studied at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA. and holds an MA in Studio Art from New York University. Her works have been featured in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. and Mexico, including Boston, Washington, DC, New York, Morelia, Guadalajara and Mexico City. Grajower also exhibited in Lugano, Switzerland and in Berlin, Bielefeld, Gera and Potsdam, Germany. She was an artist-in-residence in Florida, Israel and Germany and has several commissioned pieces including a painted sculpted glass installation at the Jewish Community Center of Wilmington, DE.; a Holocaust Memorial Sculpture Installation at the B’nai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton, FL. and an installation for The International Women’s Research Center at Brandeis University.

Her artwork is currently on display at the Florida Holocaust Museum in an exhibition entitled, Where the Past Meets the Future, which runs through September 28, 2011.

 

Drumming to Make a Difference Youth Performance  will be held on Friday, July 29, 2011 at 4:00 pm.  The event is free and open to the public. 

 

 

 
During the morning session, attendees will be exposed to a portion of the content delivered to those who attend the Museum’s community outreach program, Speak Up Speak Now!  They will break into small groups for workshops using music therapy techniques including rhythm and percussion drums.
 
The day will culminate with a drumming circle performance on instruments made by the program participants. Family, friends and members of the public are welcome to attend.
 

 

This program was designed to bring 25 inner city young adolescents, ages 13 – 18, to the Florida Holocaust Museum for a day-long experience aimed at teaching acceptance, anti-bullying behavior and how to become an “upstander” in the community. An “upstander” is defined as a person who does not simply stand by in silence in the face of injustice, but understands that each one of us can make a difference.
