Friday, Sep 3, 2021 at 12:00 pm


The Schumacher Gallery at Capital University will host an exhibition titled “A Requiem: Tribute to the Spiritual Space at Auschwitz” by Susan May Tell” from September 7 – December 11. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

This haunting exhibition by Susan May Tell hosts 17 photographic images without words, titles, or even frames. These images stand as witnesses to the horrific scene that was Auschwitz. Tell explains that her imagery meditates on the idea that “like other sacred grounds that are decaying, Auschwitz today is disappearing and raises questions about whether places of this kind should be restored and the importance of memory and commemoration. Equally important to my artistic vision and is my commitment to Auschwitz as a meditation on decay and memory.”

This show The Gallery will also be hosting Selections from The Schumacher Gallery’s Native American Collection featured in our Showcase Gallery. This exhibit will feature selected ceramics, tapestries, and artifacts that add to the rich diversity of the Gallery’s permanent collection.
