PETE LIT and the Second Saturday ArtWalk, nine writers will perform their short stories, poems, and imaginings inspired by this exhibition.
The paintings, drawings, prints, and artist’s books by Murray Zimiles are graphic statements meant to engage and propel the viewer into a whirlwind of fire and devastation. In these powerful works, Zimiles deals with the perceived absence of God and the absence of civilization during the Holocaust.
