Beloved: Children of the Holocaust is a portrait collection, created in seven months by Mary Burkett, a completely untrained artist using one pastel pencil, Q-tips, and cotton balls. These stunning portraits are a tribute to the more than one million children who perished in the face of institutionalized evil. The portraits stand as a lasting monument, honoring precious lives and reminding us that we are all beloved children of God. Please join us for an exhibit and a very personal talk by the artist, a retired pediatric nurse from Columbia. The portraits will be available for viewing at 6pm followed by the lecture at 7pm.
