HOH Kabbalat Shabbat: Artist Frank Denota
Havurah on the Hill: Artist Frank Denota
friday, october 20
6:30 PM - 11:00 pm
Vilna and Havurah on the Hill will never turn anyone away for inability to pay. If you would like to attend but finances are of concern, please email Director of Communications and Community Outreach Lynne Krasker Schultz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Havurah on the Hill is a non-denominational, egalitarian minyan for Jews in their 20s and 30s in the Boston area. HOH meets at the Vilna Shul in Beacon Hill, one of the last remaining synagogues from the early 20th century wave of Jewish immigration and hosts monthly Kabbalat Shabbat services as well as other special holiday celebrations throughout the year. This October, we welcome artist Frank Denota whose artwork will be shown at the Vilna October 22 - November 3.
One role of art is to keep memory alive - historical, artistic, social, religious and urban memory. Frank Denota, through his gallerists Carmen and Enrico Caruso, is able to perceive this necessity of keep memory alive and transform it into art. His portrayal of the American immigrant experience overcomes linguistic, national and social class barriers through the iconic representation of the pure and genuine figures of children throughout his paintings.
Join us at HOH to get a sneak peak of the exhibition and hear from the artist himself about his process, work, and inspiration.
