First Friday Art Walk Drawn to War exhibit
July 07th, 2017 17:30pm-July 07th, 2017 20:00pm
This wide ranging and colorful exhibit features artifacts from the Gregg and Michelle Philipson Collection and Archive. Both of the Philipsons lost many family members in the Holocaust, and they wanted to keep the memories alive of those who perished by assembling a prolific collection of examples of the propaganda used during the war. They also feel it is important to share these artifacts with the public through exhibitions around the U.S.
Join us Friday July 7th for First Friday Art Walk in the George H.W. Bush Gallery for wine, beer, snacks, and propaganda art. The event opens at 5:30 with remarks by Gregg Philipson at 6 pm. This event is free to the public.
The George H.W Bush Gallery main entrance is at 311 East Austin Street.
