Film Screening: Shanghai Ghetto

04/22/2018 02:00 PM

When Nazi influence overrode Germany, many Jews were forced to leave their homes and flee the country. This is the story of those who made their way into the far-flung slums of Shanghai, where they built a humble enclave before Japanese invaders chased them across the Pacific Ocean to eventual residence in the United States. Their heartbreaking trials and travels are revealed through archival footage, personal letters and modern-day interviews with two of these indomitable survivors.

In April 1946, prominent American photojournalist Arthur Rothstein took twenty-two photos that captured the living conditions of Jewish refugees in the Chinese city of Shanghai. Rothstein’s photos, commissioned by the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA), were taken seven months after the Pacific War had ended. They are a unique visual testimony to the sanctuary given to eighteen thousand Central European Jews during the period of World War II and the Shoah.

Tennessee Williams – Playwright and Painter

On view May 2 – October 7, 2018

This exhibit features 9 of Tennessee William’s paintings dating from the 1970s. The paintings are on loan from David Wolkowsky, one of Williams’ closest friends and long-standing Key West resident. Wolkowsky hosted Williams at his private island on Ballast Key, 9 miles off of Key West and at his Pier House Resort. Williams was one of the most admired playwrights of the 20th century. While he wrote fiction and motion picture screenplays, Williams is most widely known for his plays, which are chiefly set in the South. Several of his plays including, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Glass Menagerie, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof are considered among the finest of the American stage. Painting was a passion for Williams, almost to the point that it became a second profession. Toward the end of his life, Williams gradually gave up writing for painting; for him, painting was an easier form of self-expression. Critics did not think as much of his painting as his plays, however his artwork remains widely popular among collectors.
