The Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial (36 Battery Place) has an exciting exhibit on a dynamic artist. Beginning October 22, Lower Manhattan’s home for Holocaust education is unveiling its new exhibition, ”Boris Lurie: Nothing To Do But To Try,” portraying the art and life of the concentration-camp survivor and American artist.

The show focuses on his earlier 1946 “War Series” paintings and sketches that he began once he emigrated to New York, plus items from Lurie’s personal archives that reveal the inner turmoil and traumatic memories he suffered when creating. According to Gertrude Stein, Lurie said that his work “emanates from the New York streets,” despite its depiction of experiences of persecution and horror from Europe. 

“Boris Lurie: Nothing To Do But To Try” is slated to run through April 29, 2022.
