The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County welcomes back Professor Maurice Mahler to present a talk and show a different film than previously shown at the Museum, and to reveal more information about Chagall, his art, and his family. 

The film, The Art of Marc Chagall: War and Peace Through Yiddish Eyes, introduced by Dr. Linda Burghart, Scholar in Residence at the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center, explores the development of Chagall's work as life took him through Tsarist Russia, Nazi-controlled Europe, and post-war America. Burghart talks about Chagall's life and shows many of his paintings through a timeline of his life. A question-and-answer session will follow the hour-long film

Professor Mahler teaches at Rutgers University Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI-RU). He is a retired advertising executive and instructor at the School for Visual Arts in New York.

Funding has been made possible in part by a General Operating Support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a Division of the Department of State, through grant funds administered by the Monmouth County Historical Commission.
