Voice to Vision
David Feinberg, Art Professor at the University of Minnesota, will lead a presentation on the Voice to Vision Project, which he created. Voice to Vision captures the extraordinary experiences of genocide survivors from different parts of the world.
Dr. Feinberg will focus on survivors from Vietnam and Colombia who will bear witness to war and political upheaval in their native lands, as well as their journeys from fear to freedom. The stories are first shared through dialogue with the Voice to Vision team which then collaborates in the creation of abstract three-dimensional works of art reflecting the experiences and feelings of the narrator. Each of these works of art is “a memory piece,” says Feinberg. Music performed by Kimchi Hoang and other team members is part of the process which is then videotaped.
There will be a short Humanistic Jewish Sabbath service preceding the program, which is free and open to the public. An Oneg Shabbat reception will follow.
