A few weeks ago I had a most wonderful outing with my cousin. She took me downtown into Baltimore City to the American Visionary Arts Museum. There is so much to share but today, I will take you on a short visual tour of just one of my two favorite exhibits. It’s all about a fiber arts display created by Holocaust survivor, Esther Nisenthal Krinitz. The narrative tells a story of a desire for a united world and it’s people. A sense of community is the common thread and theme which runs through each embroidered picture.
This exhibit first appeared at AVAM in 2001 and it has since traveled world-wide and has returned to Baltimore.
Wouldn’t we all sleep well knowing future generations could tell stories about peace and harmony found through kindness, compassion and community?
Do return to our next post so I can show you a few images of another AVAM exhibit which I enjoyed. And lastly I’ll share information about the place I went after our morning at AVAM to relive more of the culture of this city of Baltimore, Maryland where I was born and raised.
