Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center’s opening of Charlotte Salomon: “Life? or Theater?”

Over 150 corporate leaders, Chicago art supporters, diplomats and donors attended an exclusive evening of fine art and music at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center’s summer opening of Charlotte Salomon: “Life? or Theater?” on June 19. The event was hosted by Norman and Virginia Bobins, leaders in Chicago business, cultural and philanthropic communities.

The exhibition, featuring nearly 300 of Charlotte Salomon’s paintings from the collection of the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam, offers a rare opportunity to witness Salomon’s only major work, a masterpiece that survived the Holocaust and stands as a testament to her life and artistic vision. Attendees also had the opportunity to interview Joel Cahen, director of the Jewish Historical Museum.

Charlotte Salomon: “Life? or Theater?” is the Museum’s first international fine arts exhibition, and has been made possible by the generous and visionary support of The Craig and Donna Bernfield Family Foundation, Norman and Virginia Bobins, Nathan and Alyse Mason Brill, and Nicor Gas. The Golder Family Foundation is lead sponsor for all Illinois Holocaust Museum special exhibitions. This program is also supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
