"Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art"

(Sept. 15-Jan. 21) — Arthur Szyk, the great 20th-century activist in art, confronted the turbulent, hate-filled period arounf World War II with forceful artistic depictions caricaturing Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito as the evil architects of their regimes’ destructive and inhumane policies. "Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art" explores the activism of the Polish-born artist through more than 40 politically incisive works that underscore Szyk’s role as a kind of “one man army” fighting odious policies and protagonists and advocating civil and human rights.
