Holocaust Heroes: Fierce Females—Tapestries and Sculpture by Linda Stein

Summer Institute NYC: Encounters with Linda Stein's Holocaust Heroes: Fierce Females

Join us for the Summer Art Institute, Holocaust Heroes: Fierce Females—Tapestries and Sculpture by Linda Stein in New York City, July 11-14, 2016, where participants will make art at Linda Stein’s Tribeca studio, as well as visit galleries, and participate in teacher workshops on social justice art curricula.

Linda Stein has been obsessed with the theme of protection since 9/11, and was drawn to researching the Holocaust. While many people have been recognized for their courage in facing these horrific times, however, less attention has been placed on the women who made a difference. Holocaust Heroes: Fierce Females—Tapestries and Sculpture by Linda Stein (H2F2) celebrates female heroes during the time of the Holocaust.

Current and future art educators, and others interested in using art to teach social justice—are invited to join a group of artists, scholars, and practitioners with expertise in social justice art education, along with well-known guests such as Michael Kimmel, author of The Guy’s Guide to Feminism (2011), for interactive workshops and special evening events that focus on curricular encounters with H2F2.

The curricular encounters with H2F2 summer art institute is embedded in the Master of Professional Studies in Art Education course, AED 813: Contemporary Art & Public Pedagogy. This course explores contemporary art that addresses and enacts public pedagogy through (inter)actions of cultural interfaces such as humans, technologies, localities, and politics. Such artworks are performed and embodied within networks of relations.
