November 11, 11:00 a.m. - 12 p.m.

The George Segal Gallery, in partnership with the Holocaust Council of Greater MetroWest, welcomes guest speaker, Bob Max, for a special gallery talk on Veterans Day, November 11.  New Jersey native and WWII veteran, Max was taken prisoner during the Battle of the Bulge by the German army and was forced into a Nazi labor camp.  After being starved, brutalized and denied shelter, Max escaped and was later hospitalized for ten months.  George Segal Gallery Director and Curator, M. Teresa Lapid Rodriguez, will provide an introduction and link many of the themes that Max will speak about with the artwork of Ben Wilson (1913 – 2000), and George Segal (1924 – 2000).  Both artists explored themes of the Holocaust and anti-Semitism; Wilson through his abstract expressionist paintings and collages, and Segal through his sculptural installations.

Admission to the program is free, but seating is limited.  Please RSVP by calling 973.655.6941 to reserve seats.  The George Segal Gallery is wheelchair accessible.
