My Life Into Art: An Autobiography

FORWARD By Judith Weinshall Liberman

ABOUT THE BOOK
In this moving autobiography, Judith Weinshall Liberman traces her personal development as a woman and as an artist over the forty-five year period between 1947 and 1992. This development is seen against the backdrop of the important historical events of the time. It was in 1947, before the State of Israel was established, that Judith Weinshall, an unsophisticated 18-year old girl born in Palestine, arrived in the United States to pursue higher education. In accordance with her parents' wishes, she was to study journalism, while at the same time absorbing Western values, so she could contribute to her nation's cause when she returned to her native land. Despite deep misgivings about her studies, and notwithstanding her natural attraction to art, she spent seven long years in the United States studying journalism, political science and law and earning several degrees. Eventually she realized that she had to find her personal path rather than pursue the one laid out for her by others. She began studying art, and over the following few decades created numerous series of artworks about the human condition. While tracing her personal and artistic development, this autobiography reveals the artist's thinking in creating her artworks and illuminates the close relationship between her life and her art. Although she had not served her people in the way her parents may have anticipated, she felt that through her art she was serving not only the cause of her people but that of all decent people everywhere.

Holocaust Wall Hangings

ABOUT THE BOOK
Holocaust Wall Hangings is an unusual book in that it combines reproductions of a series of unique, multimedia artworks about the Holocaust with analytical essays about these works written by three noted experts, each from a different perspective: the Holocaust and Holocaust art, art history, and Jewish art. The artist's vision of the Holocaust as expressed in the Holocaust Wall Hangings is here represented by reproductions of forty-five of Judith Weinshall Liberman's artworks as well as by detailed annotations discussing the historical background and the art pertaining to each. Her approach is also illuminated in an essay entitled "How I Create Them", in which the artist takes the reader step by step through the process of creating her wall hangings. Judging by the reviews and comments about the Holocaust Wall Hangings during exhibitions of the artworks in museums and other public institutions in the United States and abroad, this book should be of interest to people of varied cultural backgrounds and a broad range of ages—from elementary school to old age. Holocaust Wall Hangings is a book that should appeal to students of history as well as to art lovers and to artists seeking a unique new form of expression.

The Holocaust Wall Hangings Video

ABOUT THE VIDEO
The Holocaust Wall Hangings - a collection of large textile artwork by Judith Weinshall Liberman. The video was directed and produced with the artist, Judith Liberman, about the textile artwork she created in this collection of large fabric pieces. The artist's one woman show was staged at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA. The scope and scale of these works asked for a larger production than the usual art gallery video - the story of the Holocaust was displayed in so many ways by this collection that it called for producing a program that would let the feelings and history of the tragic event be retold along with details of how the artwork was created. The video explores how the art becomes the voice of social commentary, and serves as an example of finding and using that voice to express what is important in life. Video production is by Bob Lewis of Video Visuals Inc. Music by Jagan Nath Khalsa. Narration by Leonard Zola.
