The Robert and Janet Sabes Center for Jewish Arts and Humanities presents Desaparecidos: Mothers of the Disappeared, a photographic exhibition by Sylvia Horwitz, March 12-April 23, 2009, at the Sabes Jewish Community Center, 4330 S. Cedar Lake Road, Minneapolis. The exhibit is a photographic tribute to the Desaparecidos, those who "disappeared" during the military regime of Argentina's Dirty War (1976-83). Under this dictatorship an estimated 30,000 student activists, young professionals, writers, and artists were tortured and killed as political prisoners; a disproportionate number were Jewish.
Brad Hokanson (Graphic Design) moderates the Rimon Artist Salon in conjunction with the exhibition on Sunday, March 22, 2009, 12 p.m., at the Sabes JCC. Photographer Sylvia Horwitz will discuss "Photography as a Tool for Jewish Social Conscience." The cost of the event is $5.
