Dialogue on Art Making and Memory with Rosalyn Engelman

featuring Rosalyn Engelman, Ted Altschuler, Paul Lewis and David Shimoni 

in us for an evening with visual artist, Rosalyn Engelman, as we explore her life and creative process through film, music, and conversation.  The 70-minute program includes the documentary film Rosalyn Engelman: The Color of Memory, the artist in conversation with BPAC director Ted Altschuler, and Nocturnes by Chopin, Faure and Lowell Liebermann performed by pianist David Shimoni.  At the end, join us for a toast to the triptych Nocturnes, which Rosalyn Engelman generously donated to BPAC.

About Rosalyn Engelman:
Rosalyn Engelman is a painter, sculptor and installation artist.  She works with a variety of materials, including outdated and discarded electronic equipment, mannequins, nails and barbed wire, and produces art with a striking range of expressive content….In all her work, Engelman is searching for beauty, hope and transcendence.  Her art is ultimately about the indomitable human spirit-the will to create in a world where devastation is a dominant theme of life.  Her art comes from the belief that communication, especially through art and creativity, is a key source of redemption.
