Here are the details, direct from FAU:
Florida Atlantic University Libraries will host art historian Marilyn Becker, who will present a visual and lecture presentation titled ‘The Legacy of Jewish Art & Artists,’ on Sunday, April 1, at 3 p.m., in the Wimberly Library’s fifth floor performance space, on the Boca Raton campus. Becker’s lecture, which is sponsored by the Jewish Cultural Society (JCS) at FAU, will give an overview of the role of Jewish artists from some of the earliest examples in history to the modern era. Among the artists that Becker will discuss are French impressionist Camille Pissarro, Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani, German-born British painter Lucian Freud and Russian-American abstract expressionist Marc Rothko. Becker, an adjunct professor at Palm Beach State College, is the author of “The How-to-Read & How-to-Write About Art Handbook.” The cost is $20 for the general public, $15 for JCS members and $25 for two JCS family members. The JCS is a volunteer support organization whose mission is to advance Jewish cultural traditions and education at FAU Libraries through philanthropic endeavors and programs.  For tickets or for more information, contact: dottiepierce@comcast.net  at 561-852-9720
