Event Details

Join us from 6-8pm Friday, September 9 in The Gallery at Towngate for the opening of “Lest We Forget,” an artistic reaction of the Holocaust, by Wheeling resident Russ Schultz.

The reception is free and open to the public.

In 2019 Wheeling Park High School art teacher Russ Schultz traveled to Poland to study the Holocaust with Classroom Without Borders. He walked some of the sites and heard the stories from survivors who suffered through the darkest days of humanity. In response to this experience, he created the exhibit “Lest We Forget,” which features more than 40 black-and-white pieces, along with accompanying artistic statements, that chronicle some of the events of the Holocaust.

The exhibit is on display through November 21. The Gallery at Towngate is open 11am-1pm Monday through Friday and during all events.
